I am a wildlife ecologist with an interest in conducting research that informs the conservation and management of wildlife in an era of global change. I am currently an Associate Professor of Biology at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, KS. My research interests are broad, but they include urban biodiversity, mined-land ecology, and the human dimensions of wildlife conservation. I also have a strong interest in undergraduate education, providing opportunities for undergraduate research, and community outreach to the general public.
