AIS Area of Interest
Dr. Escobar's research interests include macroecology and ecological niche modeling. Using climate and remote sensing data, he aims to investigate areas of potential invasion of micro (disease) and macro (fish) species. His goal is to validate tools and theory from invasion biology into disease ecology to enhanced the field of spatial epidemiology. He also assesses methods and variables for assertive predictions of biological invasions in Minnesota freshwater ecosystems at coarse and fine geographic scales.
