I serve as an Assistant Professor of Biology & Environmental Science at CedarvilleUniversity in the Department of Science and Mathematics. My teaching responsibilities and research interests are in ecology and the environmental sciences. My research stems from my interest in ecology that studies how organisms interact with their physical environment or "life in context." Within the field of ecology I specialize in ecosystem science and biogeochemistry. Please take a look at the rest of my page for a circumspect view of who I am and what I do. Thanks for visiting!
