Research Interests

I am an evolutionary and conservation biologist with a diverse set of interests. At the time of writing (Fall 2019), graduate student projects in the lab are focused on a better understanding of the ecology, evolution, and conservation status of two species: rough-skinned newts and long-toed salamanders. Later this year, a PDF will join the lab to study bull trout.

Graduate Students

Glass, Haley PhD Evolutionary and conservation ecology of rough-skinned newts
Baumgartner, Emily PhD Evolutionary and conservation ecology of long-toed salamanders
Blaney, Charity MSc Conservation ecology of long-toed salamanders
