Education

  • Ph D University of Montana 1998
  • MS University of Wyoming 1990
  • BS Colorado State University 1985

Biography

I received a B.S. in Wildlife Biology from Colorado State University, a M.S. in Zoology from the University of Wyoming, and a Ph.D. in Organismal Biology & Ecology from the University of Montana. I grew up in Cincinnati and spent many of my weekends camping, hiking, backpacking, and climbing in OH, KY, and WV. I was motivated to find a career where I could continue to do these activities as part of my job, while still contributing to science.

Teaching Interest

I teach Conceptual Foundations in Ecology, a 3-credit graduate class on critical thinking, the scientific method, and how to develop and test mechanistic hypotheses in ecology. I also co-teach a class on scientific writing, and teach graduate seminars on various topics in wildlife ecology.

Research Interest

avian ecology, behavioral ecology, life history evolution, avian migration, effects of management actions on bird and mammal populations
