M.S. (Shugart) · Ecology
Atticus graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.A in Environmental Science. His time as an undergraduate was spent researching soil restoration of agricultural land outside of Charlottesville, VA with Dr. Aaron Mills. Soon after graduation, Atticus began work as an intern for the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation where he helped develop a GIS based model that prioritizes funding opportunities for longleaf pine restoration sites that exist in North Carolina. Since beginning his work on a M.S. in Environmental Science, he has worked closely with Dr. Hank Shugart to formulate a relevant research question concerning forest ecosystem dynamics, remote sensing, and landscape-scale modeling.
