My teaching mission is to excite students about the process of learning and figuring out things for themselves. Because doing is the key to learning, I strive constantly to incorporate active learning techniques. I use frequent in-class exercises, both individual and group, to gives students the opportunity to try new things.

My research mission is to improve continuously the breadth and quality of information about the conservation of biological diversity available to land use planners, natural resource managers, and other people whose activities shape our landscapes. I'm currently working on issues of conservation planning in suburbanizing landscapes, and particularly the question of why so little of the knowledge generated by conservation scientists is used as our suburbs continue to expand.
