Corey Duberstein came to the PNNL and joined the Ecology Group on June 25th, 1999. He has been involved in research assessing the impact of human development on the natural world by designing, conducting, and participating in research and development projects as well as compiling existing data and information into management guidance. He has assessed the impacts that wind energy farms and nuclear power plants may have on natural resources and advises clients about National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements. While his knowledge of natural history is broad, he is especially interested in avian ecology. He has used his expertise to draft management plans and understand the habitat requirements of several bird species, among which are bald eagles, sage grouse, ruffed grouse, sage sparrows and spotted owls.
