Biography

After graduating from the State University of New York: College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY:ESF) with a Bachelor’s in Wildlife Science, Jim spent his first couple of years out of college working as a wildlife technician. From 2009-2011, he was as a crew leader for the Pennsylvania Game Commission where he and his team captured deer and monitored their movements for a study investigating the impacts of a regulation change on deer population dynamics in Northeast Pennsylvania. Currently he is a Masters student, working under Drs Karl V. Miller and Robert J. Warren. His research involves monitoring deer movements along a stretch of I-20 near Madison, Georgia where an existing 4-foot right-of-way fence will be retrofitted with outriggers and wire to mitigate deer/vehicle collisions
