Ann Hild, professor in the University of Wyoming Department of Ecosystem Science and Management, has been appointed as UW interim associate vice president for graduate studies. Her appointment is through Aug. 31, 2015.

“Ann will provide much needed leadership in overseeing issues in graduate studies, including allocations of graduate assistantships, our graduate student recruitment initiative, and working with the UW Graduate Council,” says David Jones, UW vice president for academic affairs.

Hild obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree (1977) in anthropology from the University of Iowa; and a Master of Science degree (1991) in agronomy, horticulture and entomology and a Ph.D.  (1995) in range and wildlife, both from Texas Tech University. After serving as a research scientist with the USDA Agricultural Research Service in Montana, she accepted a faculty position at UW in 1996 in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

Her research focuses on 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.

Hild says she is most proud of the many undergraduate and graduate students she has assisted in her time at UW. She has received awards for her teaching, mentoring and research from UW student groups, the UW Graduate School and the Society for Range Management.
