I am a population ecologist at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and I study wild animals. I teach courses, mostly for the Fisheries and Wildlife major, that are designed to improve students' ability to make decisions for conservation. I enjoy creating and using new hands-on teaching methods in the classroom. I am a member of the Applied Ecology Faculty in the School of Natural Resources.

I rarely work in isolation.

In 2018, I completed a 6-month leave in the UK at the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust.

Check out the summary of our labs' recent paper: Whalen et al. 2019 in Ethology. We explore effects of wind turbine noise on the male chorus of greater-prairie chickens. We also ask, "What is the function of the male chorus? Is it really to attract females to the lek?"
