Diane Le Bouille

Currently, I am a postdoctoral scholar in Dr. Jane Rogosch's lab, at the USGS Texas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, Texas Tech University.

My research focuses on conservation planning and optimization. I use mathematical modeling and spatial analyses to develop resource allocation tools and meaningfully support on-the-ground decision making. I work directly with conservation organizations and practitioners to help guide conservation practices, using quantitative techniques as a mean to develop practical solutions to complex problems.

Research Interests

  • Conservation Ecology
  • Modeling, Mathematical Optimization

  • Conservation Planning
  • Spatial Analysis
  • Applied Conservation

Research Projects

Current Projects - Postdoc Research at TTU

I will be using a variety of data to develop species distribution models and to perform hierarchical spatial prioritization of a conservation network (Native Fish Conservation Areas) for species of greatest conservation need. These conservation networks are a primary tool in multi-species stream conservation used to guide the long-term focus for management and conservation efforts.
