Welcome! My name is Nate Hooven and I’m a wildlife ecologist with interests in the applied ecology of large mammals. I earned my BS in zoology (specializing in wildlife biology) from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale in 2018. So far in my career I’ve been fortunate to work across the United States with a wide variety of wildlife taxa, ranging from waterfowl, small mammals, to my primary interest: ungulates.
Currently, I am a graduate assistant and master’s student with the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at the University of Kentucky, where my thesis will focus on elk calving ecology in eastern Kentucky. You can read about my research here as well as download a current copy of my CV here. Thanks for visiting!
