Biologist joins SAU science department

By Maria Dalmasso
Communications Assistant

Laurinburg, NC - St. Andrews University added Assistant Professor of Biology Tracy S. Feldman to the Natural and Life Sciences Department this fall.

“I went to a small liberal-arts college, and that experience changed my life for the better,” said Feldman.

Feldman holds a BA in biology from Bard College, a MS in zoology from the University of Florida, and a Ph.D. in biology from Duke University.

“The people at St. Andrews have been very warm and welcoming, the atmosphere of a small liberal arts college has been inviting, and the ecology of the nearby Sandhills is intriguing,” Feldman said.

He has previously held teaching positions at The University of Wisconsin and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Feldman’s favorite subject to teach, if given the opportunity, is species interactions.

“I love the intricate stories woven into the natural world, and would hope to have the opportunity to share my enthusiasm for those stories,” he said.

“I also love the idea of teaching a class following the ecological and sociopolitical consequences of everyday manufactured objects,” Feldman added.

If not a college professor, Feldman would be working in environmental education, doing environmental/botanical consultant work, or be working in music.

  Dr. Tracy S. Feldman

Outside of his academic life, Feldman is a musician, skilled in violin and guitar while also a singer-songwriter and performer. You can learn more about his music by visiting his website at www.tracysfeldman.com/music.html.

“I love spending time with my family, photography, spending time outdoors, human-rights work, and reading fiction,” Feldman said.
