Dr. Wu’s research focuses on landscape ecology and undergraduate ecology education. The current research projects of his lab are centered on the spatial ecology of pyric-herbivory in savanna landscapes of the Great Plains and associated education program and research focused on faculty development and authentic inquiry experiences. He teaches the undergraduate course Fundamentals of Ecology and graduate course Landscape Analysis and Modeling.
