Neil Duncan graduated from the University of Vermont in 1992 with a B.S. in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology and an MS in Urban Ecology from Hofstra University. After receiving his degree, Duncan worked for a myriad of local, state and government agencies conducting research, surveys or technical field work in the natural sciences. He has grown clams on the Great South Bay, tracked mustelids in the Pacific Northwest and surveyed endangered shorebirds across Long Island. In 1999 Duncan began working in the Mammlogy Department at the American Museum of Natural History as a Scientific Assistant. As Laboratory Supervisor, he ran the Vertebrate Zoology division’s Osteological Prep Lab. Today as Collection Manager of Mammalogy, Duncan oversees the day to day operations of the department’s approximate 180,000 specimens.
