Associate Professor & Department Head

Environmental Science

Sansbury Hall. Room 213

  • Ph.D., Rutgers University
  • B.S., Ohio Northern University

Blake Mathys has always been interested in nature and animals. He majored in Biology at Ohio Northern University, with a minor in Field Biology.

Following graduation, he spent a couple of years working as a roaming field biologist, monitoring elephant seals in California, endangered sparrows in the Everglades of Florida, and migrating raptors in Washington state.

His Ph.D. work at Rutgers University focused on birds introduced to islands, so he was able to do field work in Bermuda, Trinidad, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.

He has now returned to his native Ohio, and hopes to inspire many of Ohio Dominican's young biologists to explore the natural world around them.
