Research Interests: I am broadly interested in the conservation of threatened species with respect to climate change. In particular, I love working with herpetofauna (reptiles and amphibians), because they are some of the most vulnerable species in future climate predictions. I am currently working with hellbenders, a giant salamander species, and studying how climate change may impact their egg viability.
