M.P.S., M.S. & Ph.D. in Natural Resources ManagementApply
The Natural Resources Management program focuses on both the underlying theory and on-the-ground application of practices to achieve sustainable outcomes in natural resource systems.
Because management practices and decisions arise from the combination of ecological knowledge, economic considerations and landowner/manager objectives and/or policies, research opportunities in management are interdisciplinary by nature.

"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift."- Steve Prefontaine
Previous Graduate Study: LeMoyne College (Business )
My research interests are in supply chains within saw mills, sustainability, continuous improvement,purchasing and project management. Right now the biggest driver of my research activities is the pursuit of my doctoral degree. I also want to be able to publish articles that will benefit society and help change the world in a positive manner. This past year I published my first peer reviewed article with Dr. Germain. Iím in the process working on my dissertation while finishing my course work and working full time.
Graduate Research Topic
Sawmill Supply Chains
You can please some of the people some of the time, some of the people all the time but you can't please all the people all the time. Abe Lincoln
Previous Graduate Study: Lincoln University of Mo (Environmental Science)
My research interest lies in conservation and management of natural resources through application of UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) and Geo-Spatial Information System.
Graduate Research Topic (MS)
Quantifying stand structure and dynamics of a white oak plantation in Central Missouri
Graduate Research Topic
I am researching differences in soil compaction and displacement caused by bare tires, tires with chains, and tires with single-wheel tracks on skidders.
