Lynn Mahaffy
A native Delawarean and lifelong "nature freak", Lynn pursued her advanced education in New England, first at Colby College in Maine where she got her BA in Biology and Environmental Studies and then at Cornell University where she earned her Masters and PhD in Natural Resources (Wildlife Conservation). She subsequently taught a variety of biology courses at a number of Colleges and Universities along the East Coast before finally settling back home at the University of Delaware. She currently teaches courses for the Department of Biological Sciences ranging from General Ecology, and Environmental Biology to Introductory Biology and Comparative Anatomy, with a favorite being Field Ecology because it lets her not only get outside herself but also expose students to all of the fascinating organisms and habitats surrounding us.
