Leif Hembre is an Associate Professor of Biology in Hamline University's College of Liberal Arts,
and teaches courses in ecology & evolution, aquatic biology,
invertebrate biology, and physiology. He is an ecologist and
evolutionary biologist who studies zooplankton populations and food web
interactions in lakes. He has received research grants from the National Science Foundation, Minnesota Sea Grant, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, and
the Legislative Commission on Minnesota
Resources. He regularly presents the findings of his research at national
meetings of the Ecological Society of
America and the Association for the Sciences of Limnology & Oceanography, and his
work has been published in several peer-reviewed journals. Professor Hembre holds a BA in
Biology and Environmental Studies from Saint Olaf College, and MS and PhD
degrees in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior from the University of Minnesota. Professor Hembre is a member of two professional societies: the Ecological Society of America (ESA), and the Association for the Sciences of Limnology & Oceanography (ASLO). He is also the faculty advisor for the Hamline University chapter of the Beta Beta Beta National Biology Honor Society and is a volunteer assistant coach for the Hamline University Men’s Soccer Team.
Professor Hembre emphasizes inquiry-based laboratory and field projects and discussions of scholarly literature in his courses. "I want students to experience biology beyond the textbook by reading and discussing original research and by designing and carrying out their own experiments."
