I currently teach courses in the biological sciences, including Animal Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Concepts of Biology, Biological Aspects of the Conservation of Natural Resources, and Ornithology. I have broad academic interests in the biological sciences and have taught a very wide array of other courses, including Microbiology, Wildlife Ecology, Developmental Biology, General Chemistry, and Physical Geology.
In my classes, students work hard to master the fundamental terminology, to acquire the essential skills, to establish the foundations for future learning, and to improve their analytical skills. General skills related to a liberal arts education, including writing skills, use of computer technologies, and use of the experimental method, also are emphasized.
My primary research interests are in entomology, ornithology, and ecology. In the area of entomology, my research has focused on three fronts: 1) soybean insect pest management, 2) insect population ecology, and 3) mayfly taxonomy and faunal surveys. Ornithological work primarily involves monitoring projects, including a long-term research project at the Cook Arboretum in Janesville. I enjoy working closely with undergraduate students in my research projects, and actively seek students interested in research. I also invite questions and/or specimens from students, colleagues, and the community related to insects, birds, and other critters from our environment.
