Mattew Sexson, wildlife biologist, USGS, Alaska Science Center, Anchorage, Alaska.
Matt is a Wildlife Biologist at the USGS Alaska Science Center and a graduate student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Matt’s career with USGS began in 2006, following completion of a graduate degree in Kansas. Since 2006, Matt has worked with shorebirds, waterfowl, and loons throughout Alaska. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with birds in nearly every corner of Alaska. One of my favorite projects was marking Common Eiders with transmitters at Cape Espenberg on the Seward Peninsula, where the history of human habitation and the biodiversity of wildlife provide a unique experience that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.” Away from the “office”, Matt enjoys time with his family, anything outdoors, and tinkering with projects in his garage.
