I have taught a variety of courses at UNE, including Conservation and Preservation, Conservation Field Skills, Wetland Conservation and Ecology, Wetland Restoration: Science and Policy, Women and the Environment, Introduction to Environmental Issues and others. My approach to teaching is to help students learn by doing. We do many projects in local habitats and local communities, as well as projects right here on campus.

and ecological consequences of development
As a teacher, I seek to create opportunities for students to actively engage in their own learning, through active discussion and debate in the classroom and by getting their hands dirty in the field, whether though volunteering on an organic farm, touring the local incinerator and seeing where their garbage goes, helping out at local food shelters, taking part in a work weekend at an Eco-village, or working with AIDS orphans in Kenya.I have spent a lot of time in...

I have been working in conservation research for many years and have conducted conservation research in a variety of ecosystems from east Africa and Central America to the Caribbean and Pacific Islands. The subject of my doctoral research was the drivers of population decline in an endemic songbird in Puerto Rico, especially the interactions between avian brood parasitism and nest predation by alien species. In the early 1990s, I served as monitoring ecologist for Frankfurt Zoological Society, flying extensive aerial...
Associate Research Faculty
During the 2012-2013 academic year, I am working as a research consultant and GIS technician for Oregon Metro, the regional government for the Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area. I am preparing demographic analysis and reports documenting Oregon Metro's compliance with provisions of Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act in the use and disbursement of federal funds for land use and transportation planning.
I will return to campus for the fall 2013 semester.

and urban / environmental policy; Civic Environmentalism; Demographic change; Environmental history.
My primary research interests are anthropogenic ecosystem disturbance and international conservation policy. In addition to policy work in Washington, DC and the Northeast, my fieldwork has taken me to Kenya, Madagascar, Botswana, and the Dominican Republic. I investigate the impacts of invasive species, fire, timber harvest, and climate change on community diversity over time (with small mammals and birds as study systems) and the policy implications of those impacts. I am interested in how science is applied and conservation achieved...
