Dinsmore Laboratory
For me, birding and my interest in birds began in the late 1970s when I was about age 8. My first introduction to birds came from my father, James J. Dinsmore, then an ornithologist at the University of Tampa (Florida). My earliest birding trips consisted of helping my father survey and band colonial waterbirds (mainly Laughing Gulls and several species of terns) in and around Tampa Bay. At first, birding was a casual pastime for me, but it became a bit more infectious in the 1980s when I obtained a driver's license.

NovoMag
This collaborative research project implements new, transformative strategies for the design of novel magnetic materials, with special focus on sustainable materials containing earth-abundant and inexpensive elements. The project couples a strong experimental effort with recent theoretical advances in quantum modeling algorithms and software, data-mining techniques, and high-performance hardware to accomplish its objectives.

Software Engineering

Software Engineering
Jointly administered by the Department of Computer Science and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University, it provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to learn software engineering fundamentals, to study applications of the state-of-the art software technologies, and to prepare for the practice of software engineering.

Pollinator Working Group

Pollinator Working Group
To help meet the challenge of protecting pollinators, several faculty and staff at Iowa State University (ISU) and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship formed the Iowa Pollinator Conservation Working Group (IPCWG) in 2013. This group reflects a partnership with colleagues and stakeholders from across the state. Members include scientists and educators with a focus on pest management, and members studying novel ways to conserve pollinators and other insects within an agricultural landscape.

As human populations continue to grow, the management of wildlife species is becoming increasingly necessary. As stewards of wild populations, we have a responsibility to manage them with the most effective and ethical means possible. My research suggests that if we are to achieve this goal, we must better understand the potential individual- and population-level side-effects of our management practices.

Laboratory of Kevin J. Roe | Natural Resource Ecology and Management
To date my research in my lab has focused on freshwater mollusks, fishes, and shrimps. I have two major areas of interest, I use phylogenetic methods to understand the evolution of organisms and their distributions, and population genetic tools to aid in conservation of rare species. Because many freshwater organisms are affected by anthropogenic impacts on water quality and availability, much of the work in my lab has involved endangered species.
