I'm the unit leader of the U.S. Geological Survey-Nebraska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Unit, and a professor in the School of Natural Resources.
The Nebraska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit is a unique, collaborative relationship between the U.S. Geological Survey, the University of Nebraska, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Wildlife Management Institute. The mission of the Unit is
As such, the research focus of the Unit is applied problems and issues--relevant to the wise use of natural resources--within and beyond Nebraska.
I advance the education of graduate students by teaching Quantitative Fishery Assessment (in spring of even years) and co-teaching Managed Aquatic Systems (in spring of odd years) with Dr. Mark Pegg. I also have an active research lab for masters and doctoral students and postdoctoral associates.
The goal of my research program is to increase our understanding of recreational fisheries as complex social--ecological systems. Many of my studies are initiated in response to the needs of cooperators and are designed to provide information useful in directly improving management of aquatic resources.
I've been at UNL since 2005 and I participate in Applied Ecology program area.
