Teal Wyckoff

 

Teal WyckoffTeal Wyckoff is an M.S. student in the Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Unit and Department of Zoology and Physiology at the University of Wyoming. Prior to starting her research in January 2011, Teal received a bachelor’s degree with a dual major in Physical Geography and Environment and Natural Resources from the University of Wyoming's Department of Geography, and the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources. Teal is currently a Research Scientist at the Wyoming Geographic Information Science Center (WyGISC), where she focuses on spatial data management, website coordination, outreach, and research. Her research has focused on a variety of topics, from semiarid landscape analysis using remote sensing, to cyberinfrastructure development to support carbon sequestration research collaboration, as well as web-based spatial decision support applications. Her previous experience in geospatial data management and manipulation and a keen interest in Wyoming wildlife and natural resources led her to her current work using geospatial modeling to evaluate migration corridor locations and use densities, as well as landscape connectivity and integrity related to anthropogenic disturbance of landscape. Teal’s initial research  is supported by the University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources. This work will supplement the Western Governors Association (WGA) Western Wildlife Habitat Council’s (WWHC) Wildlife Corridor Initiative as well as the monitoring and management efforts of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Teal anticipates completing her degree in May 2014.
