1. Since early 2002, I have presented 11 papers or posters at national conferences on urban effects on forest dynamics and ecosystem properties.
2. Since early 2002, I have disseminated information about the urban/forest ecology research in Louisville through campus wide publications (The Louisville Cardinal, The Portal, and Inside U of Louisville), local newspapers (Courier Journal, Louisville, Kentucky), and local public radio (WFPL, Home Grown, http://www.wfpl.org/Homegrown110202.htm).
3. I was a charter member of the Biogeosciences and Urban Ecosystem Ecology Sections of the Ecological Society of America in 2003; I ran for the chairmanship of the Urban Ecosystem Ecology Section in 2004 (subsequently lost); in addition I am a member of the Vegetation and Asian Sections of ESA as well.
4. I am the principal organizer for a proposed Organized Oral Session at the Ecological Society of America meeting in Montreal, Canada, August 7-12, 2005. Proposed Organized Oral Session: Insights, Challenges, and Future Directions in Modeling Forest Dynamics at Multiple Scales
5. I have attended the following workshops and meetings that have been intended to train or augment my professional training: (a) Likelihood and Information Theoretic Methods in Forest Ecology Course – Institute of Ecosystem Studies, October 20-31, 2003, (b) SORTIE, Forest Simulation Modeling Workshop – Institute of Ecosystem Studies. Millbrook, New York. November 3-6, 2003, (c) the Institute of Teaching and Mentoring, Sponsored by the New England Board of Higher Education / National Science Foundation (Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate Scholars). CNN Center, Atlanta, Georgia, Oct. 21-24, 2004, and (d) the 11th Cary Conference. Infectious Disease Ecology: Effects of Ecosystems on Disease and of Disease on Ecosystems. Institute of Ecosystem Studies. Millbrook, New York. May 3-5, 2005
6. I have been employed at Endicott College since September 2006. I am the College’s science tutor, I am a member of the Research Committee, and I am on the President’s Advisory Committee. I have taught or am teaching Forests of the World, Environmental Science, Environmental Issues, and Applied Statistics (3 sections). I will be teaching Plant Biology in the spring, where we will take advantage of the school's greenhouses, marshes, and forests.
