Dr. Ann HildDr. Ann Hild

Interim Associate Vice President for Graduate Education

Ann is the granddaughter of Wyoming homesteaders and Iowa farmers. She obtained a BA from the University of Iowa in Anthropology, after which she spent several years working as a carpenter, tree trimmer and Director of Parks and Recreation. She became the first member of her family to receive advanced degrees when she obtained an MS in Agronomy, Horticulture and Entomology and a doctorate in Range and Wildlife at Texas Tech University. After serving as a research scientist with the USDA Agricultural Research Service in Montana, she accepted a faculty position at the University of Wyoming, in 1996 in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

Her research considers the impacts of invasive species on shrubland and grassland ecosystems, wildlife habitat, and restoration seedings on wildland fire and anthropogenic disturbance sites throughout the Intermountain West. She has developed research collaborations with a variety of public land management, private industry and landowner groups and received funding from national, regional and Wyoming sources.

She is most proud of the many undergraduate and graduate students she has assisted in her time at UW. Ann also seeks an understanding of the role of creativity in scientific endeavors. She has received awards for her teaching, mentoring and research from UW student groups, the UW Graduate School and the Society for Range Management. When she is not in the office she enjoys walks across Wyoming landscapes with friends and pups.
