Prior to starting his master's, Ken assisted in wolf predator/prey research in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and on Isle Royale National Park as an undergraduate student from 2000 to 2002. Following completion of his Master's, Ken worked for the Ontario MNR until 2008 as a research biologist intern studying black bears, moose, wolves, and polar bears. He spent a few months as a regional biologist for the OMNR and as a wolf biologist for the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish before moving to Wyoming in summer 2008.

Linda Y. Rutledge, PhD., co-supervised with Brad White

Linda completed her PhD in 2010 and is currently a Post-Doctoral researcher at Trent University. Linda’s research focuses on eastern wolves (Canis lycaon), a species of special concern under the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA) and the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC). She uses a variety of genetic approaches to assess the evolutionary responses of wolves to human influences and to develop a better understanding of the evolutionary origins, pack social structure, and hybridization of eastern wolves. She is also interested in ethics in conservation research and outreach programs that help educate people about co-existence with wolves and coyotes.
