Justin Calabrese is a quantitative ecologist specializing on the interface between ecological theory, statistics, and empirical data. His work combines theoretical models and field data via custom-designed statistical methods to answer pressing questions in ecology and conservation biology. Calabrese’s core focus at Smithsonian's Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) is building a modern analytical platform for animal movement analysis, and making these techniques accessible to ecologists and conservation biologists. He has also studies how phenology affects the dynamics of both seasonal insect populations, and of emerging vector-borne diseases including Zika virus.
