The Best Practices working group was assembled in the Fall of 2022 to establish modelling best practices in the form of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). These FAQs will tackle the thorny issues that plague model builders and draw on the combined expertise of the working group.
Dr. David Lieske | Former Working Group member
Dr. David Lieske is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and Environment, Mount Allison University, and a spatial modeler with expertise in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), statistics, and remote sensing – a trio of tools that have helped him cast light on the conditions that have driven changes in both birds (falcons, ducks, seabirds) and mammals (elk), as well as the blacklegged tick – a species of special concern given its role in the spread of Lyme disease. Lieske’s work in wildlife modelling is recognized nationally and internationally.
