Christopher Chizinski is an associate professor of Human Dimensions of Wildlife Management in the School of Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Originally from northwestern Connecticut, he received a B.S. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Environmental Science at the University of Connecticut and then an M.S. and Ph.D. in Fisheries Sciences from Texas Tech University. His research examines the interplay of humans and wildlife that provides information to aid and inform conservation and management decisions. Some recent projects that he and his lab have been working on are motivations and barriers to hunting, satisfaction with the hunting experience, modeling hunter behavior, community-based conservation in watersheds, and motivations and sustainable behavior of foragers in the Great Plains.
