Ph.D., 2007, Wildlife Science, Cornell University
The Boulanger Lab combines aspects of wildlife ecology, human dimensions, and geospatial environmental information systems to answer applied questions that help inform wildlife management and policy decisions. Selected concepts for wildlife studies include spatial and temporal use of landscape features, population dynamics, and behavior, and we are also interested in research aimed at mitigating wildlife disease and other human-wildlife conflicts. Our human dimensions inquiry uses quantitative survey techniques to better understand wildlife and fisheries stakeholders. Jay is the co-advisor of the UND Student Chapter of The Wildlife Society.
