Research Interests:

Aquatic amphibian larvae commonly become cannibalistic. In some instances individuals may
even adapt a specific morphology that has been associated with cannibalism (cannibal morphs).
My research involves the study of ecological conditions that may influence cannibalism among
larvae and investigating the link between morphology and cannibalism among larvae from
natural populations.
