Dr. Erin Bayne
Erin is a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Alberta. As co-director of the ABMI Science centre he facilitates interaction between academics, ABMI, government, and industry. His research focuses on how biodiversity is impacted by human activities with the goal of seeking ways to minimize impacts. Most recently he has focused on using environmental sensors like ARUs and cameras and data integration to answer large scale conservation and macroecology questions by directing development of the WildTrax platform. While he does not have a particular taxonomic focus, he is best known for the development of tools that help us understand the behavioral, population, and community dynamics of birds at various spatial and temporal scales.
