Biography

Corey Duberstein is a research scientist, specializing in research involving natural resource management. He has studied the potential impacts of energy production facilities by working to help clients meet the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements. He has assessed the impacts that wind energy farms and nuclear power plants may have on natural resources. 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.
