Dr. Zach Ladin

Postdoctoral Researcher, Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology, University of Delaware

Dr. Zach Ladin will be joining us on Monday and Tuesday, March 11 and 12, for the fourth week of campus visits.  This and associated campus visits are the final phase of our hiring process for a new tenure track faculty member specializing in Coastal Data Artistry.  The new faculty member will join ESRM in fall of 2019. 

Dr. Ladin was trained as an avian population ecologist. The influence of anthropogenic stressors upon individual, population, and community dynamics weave a unifying thread throughout the body of his work.  His current research interests have grown beyond traditional avian ecology to include modeling the spread of invasive plants and insects, modeling edaphic chemistry in agricultural systems, and developing novel methods for measuring tree responses to invasive pests and climate change using hyperspectral imagery and drones.  He uses diverse tools and approaches to visualize data, collaborate with disperate groups, and engage the wider public in these topics.

Dr. Ladin’s Research Seminar will be Monday, 6-7pm in Sierra 2141

Dr. Ladin’s Teaching Demo will be Tuesday, 10-11am in Broome 2480

All are welcome!
