Chadwick Rittenhouse

Assistant Professor in Residence

My research team works at the intersection of science and management as it relates to landscape and wildlife ecology. Our projects include remote sensing and GIS studies of forest disturbance, vegetation dynamics, and land cover change, and studies of animal resource selection, movements, abundance, and survival, for species ranging from elk and mule deer to box turtles and birds. We have a strong focus on conservation planning and decision making, especially geospatial tools for conservation, broadly defined as inclusive of protection, management, and restoration of wildlife and their habitats.

I also advise students in the following course-based options for graduate studies:

Sustainable Environmental Planning and Management, an online graduate certificate program

Master of Energy and Environmental Management, an online master’s degree
