Travis brings a shared love of ecology and programming to the Cramer Fish Sciences team.
His favorite programming languages are R and Netlogo, but he is eager to learn new
programming languages and computational tools that will allow him to effectively and
efficiently answer ecological research questions.
Responsibilities: Travis's primary role at Cramer Fish Sciences is in
the development and analysis of models of salmon migration, habitat use, and life cycles.
He also builds web applications that facilitate the exploration and visualization of large,
complex data sets.
Travis earned a B.S. degree in Fisheries and Wildlife from the University of Missouri, a
M.S. degree in Aquaculture, Fisheries, and Wildlife Biology from Clemson University, and
a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from the University of Nebraska.
Travis is a basketball junkie. He loves playing, watching, and coaching basketball. In his
younger days, you might have also found him chasing flying discs on the ultimate fields.
Travis also enjoys a variety of outdoor activities, particularly hiking through California Gold Country.
