Lecturer, College of Life Sciences and Agriculture, Department of Natural Resources and Environment

I have a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Ecology & Conservation Biology, and I came to UNH as a research postdoc in 2009 (focus: amphibian ecology). I am now a Lecturer in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment. I am always working to enhance my students’ online and classroom experience (down to the tiniest details), and I believe using OER in my courses supports this goal. I teach a large ETS Discovery course (NR 435: Contemporary Conservation Issues) and an International Affairs course (IA 401), and beginning next academic year, I’ll be teaching 2 new courses (Wildlife Research Techniques & Does Extinction Matter?). I was an OER Ambassador this past year, and I’m eager to expand my use of OER with new projects and new courses this year.
