I am broadly interested in the environmental and biological factors that set the diversity, distribution, and abundance of organisms (ecology!). Most of my work focuses on how large scale stressors such as urbanization and climate change affect animals. Most recently I've explored how stream-dwelling species respond to watershed development, approaches to finding and sampling rare species, and how to do long-range conservation planning for amphibians and reptiles in the face of climate change and development.
I'm excited to work with students who share my interests; however, I'm also eager to explore new avenues of research. If you'd like to discuss working in my lab, please send me a short message with your interests and research experiences, a CV, GPA, and GRE scores.
