What are you doing now and where?

frank shane - fem graduate 2010

I am currently the field assistant for the Scandinavian Brown Bear Research Project in central Sweden.


How did FEM help you to get where you are now, or is helping you in your current position?

By way of networking with a professor from the institute, I was able to form a contact within the bear project to do an internship, followed by a master thesis topic, and subsequent employment. The FEM program developed a good general basis for thinking about forest ecology, which I have used in my thesis, as well as to simply enrich my further educational experiences.  

Any other information you consider relevant or interesting?frank with snowshoes

The Scandinavian Brown Bear Research Project has provided me with a suite of skills that I could not have otherwise attained within the same time frame nor to the same level of enjoyment! Examples of experience involve radio-telemetry, GIS, navigation, GPS collars, fieldwork, wildlife interaction(s), ecological thinking, etc.
