Scott Rinnan

Graduate Student | Quantitative Ecology and Resource Management

I'm a PhD student in the Quantitative Ecology and Resource Management interdisciplinary graduate program, co-advised by Joshua Lawler in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences and Mark Kot in Applied Math. My research focuses on predicting range shifts in species distributions as a consequence of climate change, dispersal, and interactions with other species. I also teach statistics and R for UW's Professional & Continuing Education program. In my free time I love playing music, gardening, and using mushroom foraging as an excuse to get out into the mountains whenever I can. To bolster my street cred with science nerds, I've also developed a recent obsession with Rubik's Cubes.
