Course Syllabi

 

Wildlife Science, Research, Field Studies
Bachelor of Science in Wildlife, Fisheries, Conservation Biology with an emphasis in Ornithology, University of California, Davis
My particular specialization is birds, specifically raptors, although I have studied all taxa and have completed many habitat assessments. I am interested in the ecological interactions between all taxa and how the abiotic factors influence these species and their relationships. With California experiencing a serious drought I think it is a better time than ever to better understand these ecological interactions. I have worked with many species of birds in the United States and Belize.
Before receiving a teaching position at De Anza College I lived in Belize, Central America working as a Biologist with The Peregrine Fund on the Harpy Eagle Restoration Project. After witnessing the threats and little information known about raptors I founded the Belize Raptor Research Institute to give locals opportunities to study and protect their biodiversity.
Through these experiences I have gained to appreciate how critical education is. At De Anza College I teach numerous classes related to Wildlife Science and have the honor to teach such amazing students. I am the Lead Instructor for the Wildlife Science Technician Program.
