FOR 150 - Computer Applications in Natural Resource Professions
I provide for the current and future electronic needs of the Forestry Department. I plan and implement strategies that best utilize the available resources in order to satisfy research, extension, instruction, and administrative needs. I manage the departmental computer budget. I track the computer inventory and try to optimally allocate resources. I troubleshoot hardware and software problems on over 150 personal computers at three locations. I established 2 student computer labs which I maintain. I administer our growing network and I publish our web site.
I have been involved with computers since the mid-80s. In that time, the world of computing has reinvented itself multiple times. From an IBM XT running DOS to a 386 running Windows 3.1 on a Novell network to the latest hardware/software solutions, I have evolved with the technology. This real-time learning is crucial to this fast paced area. I acquire the skills I need to get the job done asap. I make sure that a number of projects get done on time and within budget.
