Personal profile

researchinterests

I'm a conservation and evolutionary biologist. I love teaching at Olive-Harvey College, one of the Chicago City Colleges. I also have research appointments at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the Field Museum. My research is diverse and interdisciplinary, and is divided between traditional approaches to conservation biology, less traditional integration of conservation with the social sciences, and evolutionary biology.
