American alligator ecology in inland wetlands of East Texas

David is originally from Northern Kentucky where he earned his Bachelor's degree in Biology from Thomas More University in 2002. He first became interested in wildlife ecology while working at the Center for Ohio River Research as an undergraduate. He went on to earn a Master's degree in 2006 from Auburn University studying fish population dynamics in East Texas. He currently works for Alaska Department of Fish and Game researching furbearers (e.g. lynx, wolves, wolverines) and other large mammals (e.g. bears and moose) in Alaska. Current projects focus on population dynamics, movements, habitat use, and developing new survey techniques for these species. He is currently collaborating with Dr. Warren Conway and Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER) to track wolf movements and investigate wolf pack dynamics and population ecology in southcentral Alaska.
