Professor, Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology
Extension Specialist, Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Education 
Co-Director of Graduate studies, Conservation Biology

I conduct research and teach in the fields of conservation biology, insect ecology, global climate change, and monarch butterfly population dynamics. I am especially interested in promoting a citizenry with a high degree of environmental and ecological literacy, and, to this end, conduct workshops for K-12 teachers and direct the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project.
