Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

WhatStat & StatSheets
I teach a variety of courses in the area of vertebrate biology. Fall offerings include Quantitative Biology, Mammalogy, and Wildlife Management. Spring semester courses include Vertebrate Anatomy, Vertebrate Embryology, Animal Nutrition and Wildlife Ecology.I am the principle faculty advisor for students majoring in Wildlife Management and also advise students selecting Fisheries Management or the combined Fisheries & Wildlife Management option.In addition to my teaching and advising responsibilities, I serve on the University Curriclum Committee and the Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee. I also have interests in applied statistics and computer applications in natural resources.The primary responsibility of any faculty member is obviously that to the students, both in and out of the classroom. The advantage we have at LSSU over high profile, research-oriented universities is our desire and ability to relate to undergraduate students on a one-to-one basis. This personal approach to education is critical in keeping the focus on students rather than the latest grant cycle or the need to crank out publications.
