  • Biography

    I have taught biology at Pine Technical and Community College (PTCC), Pine City Minnesota since 2006. In the past, the science department curriculum has largely been geared toward healthcare students however I have recently been working to integrate additional research skills (individual research projects, data management, analysis, coding) into the curriculum. I teach a variety of courses at PTCC including Human Health and Disease, Nutrition and Wellness, General Biology I and II, Environmental Science, Anatomy and Physiology I and II, and Microbiology. In addition to teaching at Pine Technical and Community College I am also a research scientist at the Natural Resources Research Institute, University of Minnesota Duluth. My research largely focuses on the impacts of forest management and climate change on forest bird community dynamics. Overall, I have a broad research interest in conservation ecology and mitigating human impacts on biodiversity; projects I have been involved in range from impacts and control of invasive species in Hawaii and California to small mammal and amphibian community dynamics in the prairie ecosystems.
