Introduction
I am currently PhD student at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Tennessee. My research focuses on conservation planning and optimization. I use mathematical modeling to better understand and predict costs associated with protected areas, then spatial optimization approaches to inform reserve design and selection. I work directly with conservation organizations and practitioners to help guide conservation practices. ---- Personal Website: dlebouille.com ---

Article
When seeking to make land conservation decisions, should managers favor actions that will make immediate differences or those promising long-term gains? The choice depends on how individuals weight benefits and costs experienced at different future times, something temporal discount rates can be used to represent. Despite the ubiquity of inter-temp...

Funding for protected areas is limited and recurrent costs associated with managing these sites must be considered in planning their acquisition. However, most conservation planning studies either ignore management costs or use snapshot estimates, even though they vary through time. We surveyed expenditures on management made over 15 years for 37 p...
Article
Biodiversity worldwide has been declining rapidly in recent decades. Acquiring land for protection has been used as a main strategy to halt this decline. Conservation organizations commonly rely on spatial planning approaches to help identify priorities for land protection. These spatial planning approaches often assume that the overall amount of c...
Article
Spatial optimization approaches that were originally developed to help conservation organizations determine protection decisions over small spatial scales are now used to inform global or continental scale priority setting. However, the different decision contexts involved in large‐scale resource allocation need to be considered. We present a conti...
