Ellen Bledsoe

Assistant Professor of Practice

Wildlife Conservation and Management


My research focuses on the long-term dynamics of ecological communities, especially the intersection of local- and regional-scale processes and spatiotemporal dynamics. I am also interested in inclusive data science pedagogy. Please note that I am not advising graduate students at this time.


As a Professor of Practice, I teach data science in the context of ecology, natural resources, and the environment. I primarily teach at the undergraduate level, both general education courses and wildlife courses.
