Degree:

Ph.D., 2007, South Dakota State University

M.S., 2001, South Dakota State University

B.S., 1995, University of Maine

 

Courses Taught:

  • ZOOL 412 Mammalogy
  • BIOL 426 Conservation and Management of Natural Resources
  • BIOL 562 Wildlife Management and Techniques
  • BIOL 350 General Ecology

 

Research Interests:

 My research interests include ecology and management of large mammals, infectious disease ecology, wildlife-habitat relationships, population dynamics, predator-prey interactions, ecological studies that evaluate spatial and temporal responses of ungulates to changes in harvest strategies and forest management, and modeling responses of large mammals to natural and human-induced disturbances across midwestern landscapes.
