Darren Bender was appointed in July 2001 to the Masters in Geographic Information Systems program. Darren completed concurrent B.Sc. Hons. degrees in both biology and geography at the University of Regina in 1995. He completed a Ph.D. in ecology at Carleton University in 2000 and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Fishery & Wildlife Biology at Colorado State University in 2000-2001.
Darren's academic interests are in the field of geospatial information systems and analysis, particularly at the interface of biology and geography. He has published work in the areas of landscape ecology, conservation GIS and biodiversity informatics. His current research integrates quantitative spatial tools into ecological research, with particular interest in geospatial methods for habitat assessment, spatially-explicit population modelling, geostatistical species-range estimation, and GIS-based biodiversity assessment.
