This is the blog of Greg Perrier, Associate Professor of Biology and Environmental Science at the Manassas Campus of NOVA.
Here is a little information about myself. I have a B.S. degree in Zoology from the Univ. of California at Davis. I then went and spent four years in Cameroon as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Upon my return, I pursed a M.S. degree in Range Science again at U.C. Davis. After getting my M.S., I returned to Africa working as a Research Fellow at Ahmadu Bello University in Nigeria. After two years at ABU, I started working for Tufts University on a U.S. government-funded project in Niger. Next I started a Ph.D. program in Range Science at Utah State University. Upon completion of that degree, I went on the faculty at USU as the Director of International Programs for the College of Natural Resources. I later moved to Virginia and started working for the U.S. Agency for International Development in Washington D.C., a part of the State Department. Missing academia, I move to NOVA and have been working here ever since.
