Matthew Nordhagen

I currently work as a Research Associate for the co-op unit as well as Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks on the collaborative Chronic Wasting Disease Project.  Specifically, I am responsible for the management of Montana Mule Deer population data which involves database development and GIS.  Prior to my current position I worked as a GIS/Data Analyst for the Western Elk Research Collaborative.  My main career interest lies in the teaching and use of GIS as an analysis tool in wildlife conservation.


Bachelor of Arts, Geography GIS/Cartography, The University of Montana – May 2008.
