I have been involved with research on and management of black bears, white-tailed deer, moose, Canada lynx, ruffed grouse, and beavers, among other things. I also have interests in the management of Northeastern forests for wildlife and alternative energy development and its effects on wildlife habitat. Current research includes the wildlife community response to the Long Island Solar Farm.
I also lead a 2-week field course each May in conjunction with the Northeast Section of The Wildlife Society, Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Castleton State College. This course is all about hands-on learning and covers the basic skills needed to get an entry-level job or succeed in a graduate research project.
