After earning a B.S. in Natural resources and ecology from the University of Michigan, an M.S. and Ph.D., both in Entomology, from the University of Illinois, and serving as a postdoctoral researcher in Conservation Genetics at North Dakota State University, Dr. Heilveil joined the Oneonta faculty in 2007. He teaches undergraduate courses in Biological and Medical Terminology, Entomology, Methods in Population Genetics, Biological Literacy, Aquatic Invertebrate Ecology, Field Entomology, and NY Stream Biota: ID and Ecology, as well as various graduate courses in entomology, stream ecology, and population genetics. Dr. Heilveil is currently studying a range of questions involving life history of aquatic insects, population ecology of aquatic organisms, the impacts of urbanization on aquatic populations, and conservation genetics of aquatic species from land crabs to otters.
