He is currently an Associate Professor at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Temple. He received a B.S. in Range Management from Texas Tech University in 1986, a M.S. in Range Science from Texas A&M University in 1991, and a Ph.D. in Rangeland Ecology and Management from Texas A&M University in 2008. Dr. Angerer's research interests include simulation modeling, integration of remote sensing and GIS to support modeling and landscape assessments, and livestock nutrition management. His current research focuses on developing livestock early warning systems to assist producers in adaptive management strategies for drought and variable climate, building decision support systems for improving livestock and vegetation management on rangelands, and studies to examine livestock and vegetation response to patch burning. He also serves as the Director of the Center for Natural Resource Information Technology, a hub within Texas A&M AgriLife Research for development of decision support tools and natural resource monitoring. He has extensive international experience, having led or collaborated on projects in 14 countries. In 2015, he was selected to receive a United States Fulbright Specialist Award to work with researchers in Peru on livestock early warning system technology.
