Serving Since

Marlin was raised in Boulder City, NV, and earned his B.S. in Zoology from North Dakota State University. Following undergrad, he traveled the country, working on diverse research projects, including behavioral ecology of prairie dogs in New Mexico, disease ecology of mongoose and rodents in Hawaii, and predator community dynamics and waterfowl nest survival in South Dakota. Marlin subsequently earned his M.S. from South Dakota State University, where his research focused on the spatial and temporal ecology of bobcats and coyotes in an agricultural landscape. In 2022, Marlin joined Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute as a Ph.D. student, where his research focuses on movement and spatial ecology of pronghorn in the southern shortgrass prairies of Oklahoma and Texas.
