Alec Wong


I am from Queens, New York. I completed my undergraduate degree in Fisheries and Wildlife with a concentration in Conservation Biology and a minor in Mathematics at the University of Nebraska Lincoln in 2013. At the Nebraska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, I involved myself in research concerning the biology and life-history of the invasive Chinese mystery snail (Bellamya chinensis). After participating in two urban ecology projects in New York City following my graduation, I joined the New York Unit. I am interested in quantifying the abundance of moose in Adirondack park, and investigating the effects and interactions of multiple environmental stressors on moose population dynamics and life history.
