Mick is an ecologist whose primary interest is the ecological study of freshwater
ecosystems, with a particular focus on how these ecosystems respond to global change.
Originally from Pennsylvania, Mick has come to Colorado after he received a PhD in
Biology in 2016 from the University of Alabama.
He is new to the Naropa community and looks forward to exploring the natural wonders
of the Boulder area with his Field Ecology students.
