M.S. Eastern Illinois University (Biology)
B.S. Towson University (Organismal biology and ecology; animal behavior)
I assist with student and faculty research, lab instruction, chemicals and supplies purchases, and budget management. I also work to ensure that our research programs are following all government regulations.
I conducted my graduate research on snake dietary ecology, and my current research interests include reptile and amphibian population dynamics and conservation. It is extremely important to me that I am able to contribute to the conservation and understanding of imperiled ecological systems, and that I am able to channel this impact by educating local communities and students on how they can become more involved in the conservation of their surrounding ecosystems.
I consider myself very fortunate to be able to so closely work with, and mentor, the exceptionally bright and talented students whom Davidson attracts as they develop and implement research projects of their own.
