Brittany Mosher is an applied ecologist who collaborates extensively with state, federal, and non-government conservation partners to generate knowledge that can be applied both to current conservation conundrums. Her dissertation research at Colorado State University focused on understanding the disease dynamics of boreal toads and chytrid fungus in the southern Rocky Mountains, with the goal of informing conservation efforts.

Brittany is currently a postdoctoral researcher with the US Geological Survey’s Amphibian Research and Monitoring Initiative (ARMI) and David Miller’s Applied Population Ecology Lab at Pennsylvania State University. Her research interests are broad, spanning disease ecology, species distribution modeling, parameter estimation, natural resource decision-making, and identifying optimal study designs. She is an experienced teacher who has taught Program R workshops as part of The Wildlife Society annual meeting and has assisted with Program MARK workshops across the country.
