Welcome to Dr. Ho Yi Wan's Spatial Ecology and Conservation Science Lab (SECS)
I am a landscape ecologist and conservation biologist who is passionate about studying the linkages between landscape patterns and ecological processes across spatial and temporal scales.
My research integrates the fields of landscape ecology, remote-sensing, wildlife biology, and landscape genomics to evaluate biodiversity and ecosystem responses to drivers such as climate change, fire, and human activities.
Previously, I was a Research Scientist at the Computational Ecology Lab at University of Montana, and a Research Affiliate at the USDA Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station's Center for Landscape Science. I also hold an adjunct professor position at Northern Arizona University. In collaboration with a network of practitioners and scientists around the world, I participate in ongoing conservation and research projects in North America, South America, Asia, and Europe.
