My research centers on questions related to landscape ecology, ecophysiology, and climate change effects, often using lungless Plethodontid salamanders as a model system. I have a broad interest in many ecological questions and organisms and seek to conduct sound and interesting science.  For more information on my research interests and projects, check out my Research page!
