Dave Daversa is interested in optimizing landscape connectivity for endangered species threatened by disease. In collaboration with the National Park Service, he is working on better understanding movement and infection risk in endangered Yosemite toads, with the goal of developing data-driven re-introduction strategies to strengthen their vulnerable populations. Currently a La Kretz Postdoc, Dave received his PhD in 2016 from the University of Cambridge, and then went on to do a postdoc at the Institute for Integrative Biology, University of Liverpool.
