Profile: Pattama Ulrich
I am a doctoral student at The Ohio State University and a nurse by profession in the US Public Health Service. I am very interested in linking ecological and public health and balancing natural resources with development needs using risk modeling in my research. I am amazed by the beaver' s ecological engineering skills in changing our landscape and water resource. I am learning from The Columbus Metro Parks on their success with incorporating beavers (and other keystone species) in their wetland restoration projects and parks in the urban and peri-urban areas where both human and wildlife shared benefits.
