WELCOME: I'm an Assistant Professor of Biology at Coe College, where I work with undergraduates to learn how organisms and communities respond to change, both in the past and present. My research uses comparative approaches from diverse fields to study ecological and evolutionary processes in reptiles and amphibians. My research interests include chameleon evolution, neuroanatomy, and conservation; reproductive ecology in lizards and frogs; and urban ecology of snakes and turtles. Some of my research has been featured in the Washington Post, NBC Today, and VICE. Follow my Twitter or contact me.
