Role as Faculty

Many undergraduate students are uncertain and undecided about their current academic path and their future plans. In addition, students are not aware of the enumerable opportunities that are available in all fields of study. The primary role of the faculty member is to begin to show students the doors of opportunity. An enthusiastic instructor and advisor should provide the student with the basic and fundamental information required to proceed to the next step in their career while at the same time challenge the student with material and ideas that will prompt them to seriously reflect on their career choice.

Research Interests

My research focuses on aquatic invertebrates, especially aquatic insects. Over the past 28 years, my colleagues and I have completed research on a variety of subjects, bringing in several million dollars worth of research funding, which has helped employ numerous student assistants on many projects. The research has included:

  • surveys for rare and endangered species in state-owned properties
  • biomonitoring streams, lakes, and wetlands
  • examining the effects of contaminants and other chemicals
Undergraduate Research/Internship/Employment Opportunities
  • a vast array of research topics on aquatic invertebrates can be explored
  • students have completed internships with local government agencies
  • employment as a student assistant or a work-study student is often available through the Natural Sciences Department or Lake Superior Research Institute (LSRI)
