I am a faculty member in the Wildlife and Fisheries Biology Program in the Rubenstein School.  Courses I regularly teach include: Terrestrial Wildlife (WFB 283), Wildlife Behavior (WFB 275), Conservation Biology (WFB 224), and Wildlife Habitat and Population Measurements (WFB 150).  I also serve as the faculty advisor to the UVM Wildlife and Fisheries Society, which is an official chapter of The Wildlife Society.

I also developed an online course entitled Conservation Biology and Modeling with Dr. Terri Donovan of the Vermont Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit in partnership with the US Bureau of Land Management National Training Center.  The course covers an overview of major topics in conservation biology and exercises that demonstrate how to model the various concepts covered.   To view the course, please visit the Vermont Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit Spreadsheet Project.
