I used to teach Forest Ecology at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. I loved teaching this subject area,teaching_kobe especially being in the field with students and guiding them to better understand how forest ecosystems work.

I will be teaching / coordinating a new introductory undergraduate course that is part of the new Forestry curriculum. I am delighted to delve into all of the ways that forests are critical to human well-being and the environment and their linkages:

I also have been teaching a graduate course that is focused on proposal writing, but that also explores other aspects of being a scientist, including responsible conduct of research:
