Zach Bradley - Animal care and research assistant Fall 2011 - current
I am currently a junior at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I love to play football, work-out, and watch movies. I am also a huge Tennessee Volunteers fan and love to attend most of their sport events. Along with my love of sports, I have always loved animals, especially reptiles. I am majoring in Animal Science/Pre-vet and will be attending the Veterinary Program after I graduate and become a great veterinarian.
Abby Thistlethwaite - Animal care and Research assistant Summer 2013 - current
I have a broad range of experience, ranging from surveying and propagating a variety of critically endangered native fish species, to working as a keeper at a rescue containing over 273 big cats. Above all, however, my greatest interest has always been in herpetology.
Trey Johnson - Animal care and Research assistant Summer 2013 - currentI began working with Lisa during the summer of 2013. I would like to study animal behavior and how it can be used to answer different evolutionary questions and predict responses to various stimuli. In the lab I assist with lizard care, data collection, video analysis, and blood tests. I want to eventually earn a PhD and conduct research as career. Working in Lisa’s lab has given me great experience working with animals, collecting data, and learning how to do research in a laboratory setting.
