Wood, SherryBiology Laboratory Coordinator for Ecology Labs & Faculty Leader for Gonzaga in Ecuador | Email: email@example.com | Phone Extension: 6626
Since 1995 I have coordinated curriculum and materials for various courses at Gonzaga University. Currently I am coordinating the Human Ecology (Biol 123L) and General Ecology (Biol 102L) labs. Teaching is a large part of my "coordinator" position and you may see me teaching Diversity of Life (Biol 101L), Wildlife Management (Biol 359L), or even Biological Concepts (Biol 100) as well as the ecology courses. During the summer I teach an upper division course in Field Botany (Biol 340) and am the Faculty Leader for Field Studies in Biodiversity (Biol 359), taught in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands the past three summers.
When I'm not in Ecuador in the summer I coordinate GU student research projects with the US Forest Service, usually studying small vertebrate populations on the Idaho Panhandle National Forest.
Before coming to GU I worked for the US Forest Service as a Wildlife Biologist in northern Idaho. And before that (we're going back a ways now...) taught Ecology, Natural History and Field Botany in southern California along with various research projects in the Mohave Desert. And before all that...I studied Wildlife Biology at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and completed my master's degree in Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Riverside.
For more than 35 years I have been married to Bob, an incredible swim coach and father to my three adult sons. We live on 22 acres south of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho where we spend lots of time with our many lovable dogs. When not at GU, in Ecuador, or home, I spend my time in or near the water, usually sculling or sweep rowing, sailing, fishing, or kayaking.
You can find me in Hughes 104 or one of the teaching labs most of the time. Feel free to stop by and get acquainted.
