I am a wildlife biologist/conservation biologist with teaching and research commitments. I have worked in NY State as well as several western states, and in Costa Rica and East Africa.
I am a conservation biologist, who has primarily studied populations of birds and mammals in natural habitats. Currently, I am involved deeply in the development of biological indicators to monitor whether biodiversity and ecosystem services are conserved in agricultural landscapes as changes occur in those landscapes.
I teach courses in field biology and conservation biology. My role is to inform students about these aproaches to the natural world, and to increase their passion for the importance of these activities.
