Matt Orr
Associate Professor

I conduct research in topics spanning behavioral ecology, restoration ecology, and the application of restoration ecology to medicine. Being a scientific generalist has helped me to explore fields from a trans-disciplinary perspective and offer my undergraduate students a wide array of research experiences that match their interests.
