I enjoy working with non-science majors who may be new to many of the disciplines that I teach. Introductory courses I teach include Biology, Botany, Marine Biology and Environmental Science. Other courses for Huxley on the Peninsulas include Natural History of the PNW, Marine Ecology, and the Puget Sound Research Seminar.
I am interested in trophic level responses to salmon return on the Elwha River following dam removal, particularly benthivorous and piscivorous bird species. I am also interested in the restoration and revegetation of the newly exposed lake beds. I am actively trying to connect students with some of the important restoration work (and associated research) occurring in our area. I am also interested in long-term monitoring of seabirds (dead or alive) and their use of various offshore marine habitats of the north WA coast.
