- Ph.D., 1977, University of California, Berkeley; 1977.
- M.S., 1973, University of California, Berkeley; 1973.
- B.S., 1972, University of California, Berkeley; 1972.
Dr. Kie is currently serving as a Research Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences as part of a long-term personnel assignment from The U. S. Forest Service. His research interests include landscape ecology and the ecology and management of large mammals such as elk, deer, and moose. He has a particular interest in modeling animal movements as a way to explore their effects on ecosystems. He has won a number of professional awards including: Olof C. Wallmo Award from the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies in recognition of outstanding contributions to knowledge and improved management of mule and black-tailed deer, the Arthur S. Einarsen Professional of the Year Award from the Northwest Section of The Wildlife Society, and the Raymond F. Dasmann Professional of the Year Award from the Western Section of The Wildlife Society. Dr. Kie is also an avid SCUBA diver, and enjoys spending time in the field each fall hunting upland game birds with his Labrador retrievers.
