I conduct my urban ecology work as a graduate student in the Joel Brown Lab at the University of Illinois at Chicago and as a staff scientist at the Chicago Academy of Sciences.
I also serve with a variety of community groups. Some that you might be interested in are below:
The Chicago Herpetological Society has monthly meetings where scientists, kids, and anyone interested in reptiles and amphibians gather. Chances are you’ll see me at the meetings.
ReptileFest. At 40,000 square feet, ‘Fest is the nation’s largest educational reptile and
amphibian show. Here you can see and
interact with hundreds of interesting animals and people who are expert in
their care. Come meet me and see some of
The North American Native Fishes Association. You’ve seen fish from all over the world at your local pet store. You might have even kept some as pets. But what do you know about the large and diverse array of fish that live in your neighborhood? Join my family and me on a local fish-watching trip.
