Teal Wyckoff

Teal 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 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 online geospatial tools to support natural resource decision making in Wyoming. Her research has focused on a variety of topics, from semiarid landscape analysis to cyberinfrastructure development. Her previous experience in geospatial data management and manipulation and a keen interest in Wyoming wildlife and natural resource management led her to her current work using geospatial analysis metrics to evaluate the influence of development on mule deer migration. Teal’s research is supported by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Wyoming Wildlife: The Foundation and the University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources. This work will support the monitoring and management efforts of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Teal anticipates completing her degree in 2016.
