Biography

Roger is the program coordinator for the Northwestern Hub for Bat Population Research and Monitoring and has been coordinating Oregon’s statewide bat monitoring effort (Bat Grid 2.0) since 2016. Roger manages ecological monitoring and research projects focused on bats across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. In particular, he coordinates large scale, multi-stakeholder acoustic monitoring projects such as the North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat). Although broadly interested in mammalogy and bat biology, Roger’s current interests involve using a diversity of tools in ecological studies of bats to support and advance their conservation in light of recent developing threats. Prior to joining the HERS Lab, he worked extensively on bat and wind energy issues including working with industry to evaluate the impacts to bats from operating wind energy developments.
