Interests and Expertise

I absolutely love to spend time exploring the out-of-doors with classes at EMU's two wonderful field stations: Fish Lake/KEEC and the Parsons Center. Both sites afford an excellent opportunity to learn about the natural wonders right here in the state of Michigan, and to use that hands-on study to understand broader concepts in ecology and evolution.
