Stephen Webb

Research Assistant Professor (512) 496-2499 Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Stephen Webb joined the Texas A&M Natural Resources Institute in November 2021 as a senior research scientist. His research focuses primarily on game and large mammal species such as white-tailed deer, mule deer, elk, domestic cattle and wild pigs, but also has studied greater sage-grouse, northern bobwhite, and several lizard species. He uses advanced and novel tracking and sensor devices, and autonomous recording units, to develop behaviorally and spatially explicit models of animal movement, resource selection, animal interaction, and changes in population demographics.

Prior to joining NRI, Webb worked as a quantitative ecologist for a private natural resource consulting firm in Wyoming. He also worked for a private, non-profit agricultural research institute where he served as manager of ag systems technology and led the range and wildlife ecology research group.

Dr. Webb received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from Texas A&M University-Kingsville where he majored in range and wildlife management. He received his Doctor of Philosophy in wildlife science from Mississippi State University.

Stephen is a 7th generation Texan, so joining the Texas A&M Natural Resources Institute is an exciting opportunity to be back home. Outside of work, Stephen spends as much time as possible with his wife and daughter, and also enjoys hunting, fishing and photography.
