Dr. Andrew Lepp
I am interested in helping students achieve their career goals, particularly in professions related to park management, environmental education, and natural resource conservation. Before earning my PhD, I worked for the US National Park Service, the US Forest Service, and served as US Peace Corps Volunteer in Uganda’s national park service (Africa).
In addition to teaching, I am an active researcher with interest in the human dimensions of natural resource management, international tourism, and sustainable development. I am also very active researching a range of issues centered on new media (e.g., smartphones, social media, esports) and human behavior.
Available to speak on topics related to new media (e.g., smartphones, social media, internet, esports) and human behavior (e.g., academic performance, physical activity, recreation, tourism) and experience (e.g., anxiety, boredom, enjoyment).
