Ian Riley


  • BS University of Washington 2013


I grew up in Washington State and in 2013 earned my B.S. in Environmental Science and Resource Management with a focus on wildlife biology at the University of Washington. After I graduated, I primarily worked as a field assistant on greater sage-grouse research projects with the University of Nevada-Reno and the University of Idaho. I enjoy watching birds, hiking, hunting, traveling, and listening to music.

Research Interests

In 2015, I was accepted at the University of Idaho as a Master’s student and my research will focus on how grazing practices impact greater sage-grouse habitat, population demographics, and their behavior.
