Matthias Leu is a postdoctoral associate with USGS in Boise, ID.  He earned a Ph.D. from the University of Washington in wildlife biology and conservation; his dissertation work investigated habitat-wildlife interactions. As a post doctoral fellow, Matthias worked with John Marzluff, University of Washington, on models predicting the spatial distribution of marbled murrelet nest predators and currently investigates with Steve Knick, at USGS in Boise ID, how anthropogenic resources and land cover change influence sagebrush habitats and wildlife populations.  Matthias’ research interests are in spatial ecology and wildlife conservation.
