Hello! I teach courses in support of the Conservation Biology major under the Interdisciplinary Environmental Science degree program.
I have been a wildlife biologist with the research branch of
the U.S. Forest Service in
My research interests are mammal (and other vertebrates) ecology and behavior and applications of renewable energy technologies.
I have used geographic information systems in research and will teach special research courses in applications of GIS.
My postdoc research on habitat mapping for bird conservation for Partners in Flight and The Nature Conservancy is presented at this web site:
During Fall 2003 at OLC, I taught a GIS applications
course in which we created a database in ArcView of all fatal highway accidents
during 1983-2001 for 8 counties in southwestern
I am very interested in advancing the knowledge and use of renewable energy technologies, such as wind, solar photovoltaics, passive solar heating, and energy efficient building design. I taught the first course in Renewable Energy Technologies, EnS 483, during Spring 2004. I believe that these technologies offer great potential benefit to rural areas with low population density, and reservations in particular. Wind, solar, and efficient building design can provide satisfying new career paths for entrepreneurs as well as providing clean, renewable power, and energy savings to individual homes and communities.
Thanks for visiting this site and feel free to contact me any time.
