Director of the Center for Neural Engineering; Professor of Engineering Science and Mechanics, of Neurosurgery, and of Biomedical Engineering
The dynamics of neural systems, how group dynamics form or emerge from the coupled dynamics of individual units, and how to measure and interact with these systems.
Professor of Biology; Alumni Professor in the Biological Sciences
The use of ecological theory in population management.
Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics

Mary Ann Bruns
Professor of Soil Microbiology and Biogeochemistry
Compositions and functions of microbiomes in agriculture, ecological restoration, and engineered systems for ecosystem service provision and climate change adaptation
Professor of Wildlife Resources
Avian ecology; avian response to oil and gas exploration and development; effects of habitat fragmentation on bird populations; managing wildlife on private land
Professor of Biology
The study of biodiversity in threatened ecosystems, the effects of human-modified landscapes on wildlife, and behavioral ecology of sciurids. Dr. Mahan teaches introductory biology, environmental studies, field ecology, and evolution.
Associate Professor of Wildlife Population Ecology
Population ecology, quantitative ecology, avian and amphibian ecology, conservation decision analysis, life-history evolution.
Professor of Production Systems and Modeling
Agricultural Systems, Agricultural and Natural Systems Modeling, Soil Carbon and Nitrogen Cycling, Bioenergy Systems, Coupled Hydrologic and Nutrient Modeling, and Plant Competition
Assistant Research Professor
Conservation biology, invasive species ecology, effects of human disturbance on biodiversity, illegal reptilian wildlife trade, animal coloration and the ecology of visual signals.
Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Sjoerd Willem Duiker
Professor of Soil Management and Applied Soil Physics
Assistant Professor of Biology
How anthropogenic stressors affect plant communities, conservation, and restoration options. Recent work has focused on how deer and silvicultural techniques impact forest understories, with future projects likely extending to rare and invasive plant biology as well as climate change adaptation.
Assistant Professor of Aquatic Ecology
The relationship between community structure and ecosystem processes in rivers and streams, and factors which influence this relationship across local, landscape, and regional spatial scales.
