Prospective graduate students should read through Future Ecologists on my Extension Wildlife site before contacting me.
I enjoy gardening, music, nature-watching on walks with my dog, and outdoorsy things like hiking, rafting, and fly-fishing - when I get time to do so. I am honored to have Strega, a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, as my dear friend and dogsports teammate in the Rally, Obedience, and field training.
