Areas of interest include herpetology and ecology, as well as undergraduate biology research.
My research program employs a combination of community, population, and behavioral ecology to address questions related to wildlife management and conservation across an urban to rural gradient, particularly herpetofauna (reptiles and amphibians). I endeavor to engage both undergraduate and graduate students in all aspects of this research program building a team of collaborators that can learn from each other’s strengths. Radio telemetry, hand-held and automated, is a vital technology we utilize to make our field observations as well as standard wildlife surveys. Some of our focal species include: Crotalus adamanteus (Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake), Drymarchon couperi (Eastern Indigo Snake), Gopherus polyphemus (Gopher Tortoise), and Athene cunicularia (Burrowing Owl).
