The overall scope of this work is to design alternative plans for initiating and implementing monitoring of long-term trends in the distribution and abundance of the flora and fauna across the East Foundation properties. His long-term goals include mentoring students and assisting graduate students with their research projects.
Jeremy graduated with his Ph.D. in 2013 from the University of Idaho where he evaluated methods for studying greater sage-grouse populations. Jeremy earned a Master of Science in Biology from Kansas State University where he conducted a study to determine how various trapping methods and baits affected small-mammal population estimates. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Sciences from the University of Washington where his studies included the use of riparian forests by bats.
