Mr. David P. Stainbrook
Before beginning my graduate research with the Pennsylvania Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, I worked as a biologist aide for the Pennsylvania Game Commission, where I trapped and VHF-collared white-tailed deer, and banded mourning doves, Canada geese, and several species of ducks. I grew up in Northwestern, PA and received my B.S. in biology from Allegheny College in 2007, with a focus in pre-veterinary science. I spend most of my free time outdoors hunting, fishing, hiking, and traveling.. My graduate research focused on evaluating wildlife population estimators and modeling habitat use, specifically with white-tailed deer. My research interests include population dynamics, ecology and management of large mammals, wildlife diseases, wildlife damage management, predator-prey dynamics, and the use of Geographical Information Systems in natural resources.
