Unit Leader

Dana Winkelman
Dana Winkelman-Unit Leader

I received my BS degree in biology in 1984 and my MS degree in Biology in 1987 at the University of Nevada, Reno. I received my PhD in zoology from the University of Georgia in 1994. I joined the Cooperative Research Unit program in 1998 as Assistant Unit Leader at the Oklahoma Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. In 2003 I became the Unit Leader at the Colorado Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit.
