Robert's research is broadly focused on how populations have responded to past climate change. Specifically, he studies how the historical distributions and past areas of climate refugia of small mammals will influence future climate change responses. Robert earned my Bachelor of Science degree from City College of New York (CCNY) where he was introduced to studying the distributions of species through time. As a Master’s student at CCNY, he developed several methods to improve the performance of ecological niche models. Additionally, Robert helped develop several R packages to implement these approaches.

As a PhD student at the University of California-Merced, Robert studied the historical distribution and climate refugia of two western North American Mammals. As an NSF Postdoctoral scholar in Dr. Scott Edwards’ lab at Harvard University, his research will focus on projecting how genetic diversity will change in a warming world.
