Meet Dan Kashian, Program Director

Introducing our new Program Director, Dan Kashian

At the end of the spring/summer 2016 semester, our founding program director for the Environmental Science Program, Lawrence (Larry) Lemke, left Wayne State University to take the position of department chair at Central Michigan University for their Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. While we will certainly miss Larry and his many contributions to the program, we are very happy to have Dan Kashian stepping up into the role of program director. 

Dan has been a valuable member of the environmental science program since 2006 and is an associate professor in the Department of Biology. He has a Ph.D. in forest ecology and zoology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with both a B.S. and M.S. degree in natural resources from the University of Michigan.

His research primarily focuses on forest ecosystems with particular interest on the following topics:
