Taal Levi / Associate Professor

Hello, and welcome to my lab at Oregon State University. I combine empirical data, fieldwork, and quantitative methods to address applied problems. My focus is broad, extending from understanding how to assess the spatial extent and ecological consequences of wildlife overexploitation, to fisheries management, the ecology and conservation of predators, disease ecology, and population dynamics in a changing climate. In each case, anthropogenic impacts have altered biotic interactions, and these alterations have consequences for things that humans care about, which is where management options need to be considered. Although my work is rooted in ecology and applied mathematics, I like to cross discipline boundaries to explore implications for human livelihoods and health.
