About me

My name is George Brooks. I am an evolutionary ecologist using theory to address global challenges in conservation.

I completed my PhD at Virginia Tech, during which I developed demographic models to inform the recovery plan for reticulated flatwoods salamanders. I am now a post-doctoral researcher investigating filial canniablism in eastern hellbenders, life history evolution in vertebrates, and the socioecological dynamics of fisheries.
