Mathew Dornbush 2015 Recipient of the Faculty Award for Excellence in ScholarshipProfessor Natural and Applied Sciences

Biologist Mathew Dornbush has made a priority of involving both graduate and undergraduate students in his academic scholarship and of winning outside grants to support that research.

His primary interests involve the role of native plant restorations in improving ecosystems, including the potential use of native tallgrass for bio-energy purposes and the restoration of wild rice, bulrush and wild celery stands to the bay of Green Bay.

Dornbush joined the UW-Green Bay faculty in 2005 after earning his doctorate in ecology at Iowa State University. He recently joined the academic affairs administrative team at UW-Green Bay as an assistant vice chancellor responsible for graduate studies and research grants.
