Greetings! I am Professor of Biology, Associate Dean of Arts and Sciences, and Director of the IPFW
Environmental Resources Center (ERC).
My students and I are engaged in research on a variety of animals,
notably snakes and turtles. Principal areas of focus are the ecological
requirements of imperiled species, and the improvement of landscape
management approaches to meet project objectives while maximally
The ERC is a collaborative effort among faculty, students, and community partners to understand and protect the region's natural resources.
I also maintain a website providing information about the region's reptiles and amhibians - their ecology, conservation and management. I have that linked above at Outreach.
