My research and teaching reflect my interests in Ecology, Conservation Biology, Behavior and Environmental Science.
I have taught a wide variety of courses at OSU. My current teaching includes courses in Animal Behavior (Z 350/ BI 350), taught from physiological, sociobiological and evolutionary perspectives, two graduate courses in Environmental Science (ENSC 515 & 520) where current issues in Environmental Science are critically examined and a portion of General Biology (BI 211) concerning animal diversity.
I am on the editorial
board for Conservation Biology and I serve as Assigning Editor for
that journal. I am on the Board
of Directors for the Amphibian Conservation Alliance (Washington,
DC). I am a member of the Species Survival Commission of the
World Conservation Union (IUCN) and Co-Chair of its Declining Amphibian
Populations Task Force (DAPTF) Pacific Northwest Section.
I am a science advisor to Earth and Sky Radio. I am also a
member of numerous professional societies including the Ecological
Society of America, The Society for Conservation Biology and the Animal
Behavior Society. I am an AAAS Fellow, a Fellow of the Animal
Behavior Society and a
Fellow of the Aldo Leopold Leadership Program of the Ecological
Society of America.
