Hello, and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Travis Seaborn. I am an Idaho National Science Foundation EPSCoR Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Idaho. I am primarily in the lab of Dr. Chris Caudill, but I also work closely with Lisette Waits and Paul Hohenlohe. I am part of the Idaho GEM3 project.
I completed my PhD candidate in the School of Biological Sciences at Washington State University in the labs of Dr. Erica Crespi and Dr. Caren Goldberg. On this site, you will find information about my research interests (in general public terms), my publications, and other personal notes on teaching and outreach. I am a devout QGIS and R user, and am always happy to talk stats and share scripts.
Broadly speaking, I am interested in conservation and ecology as species face environmental change, and how our actions can shift these outcomes. I take an interdisciplinary approach, using tools and research from conservation genetics all the way to continental scale climate change models of where species occur. This leaves me exploring questions a variety of basic and applied biology questions scaling from genomes, to phenomes, to social-ecological systems and their landscapes.
All photos by me, unless noted otherwise, and come from my various hiking, fishing, and field work adventures. Please do not use without asking first.
If interested in some of my on-going, collaborative and public works, you can find my GitHub page here.
