The main goals of my research are to understand and quantify spatial and temporal patterns which influence movement patterns, habitat suitability, and biodiversity trends. This research combines ecological fieldwork with G.I.S. and other quantitative techniques to address conservation issues. 

I am currently examining the effects of habitat alteration on amphibian communities and morphometrics


Additionally, I'm seeking additional funding to study the effects of land-use and climate change on herpetofauna distributions
