I am interested in ecology and themes pertaining to evolution, particularly life history evolution and biogeography. As a herpetologist, I am also interested in the biology of turtles, especially tortoises (Family Testudinidae). My research with turtles and tortoises has included analyses of population size and structure; home range, dispersal, habitat use, and seasonal activity patterns; reproduction and survival; population modeling; and biogeography. I’ve worked with a variety of species, including yellow mud turtles, gopher tortoises, Mojave and Sonoran desert tortoises, Texas tortoises, and pancake tortoises. I am passionate about conservation issues, and much of my work has focused on analyses of threats to turtle and tortoise populations, making recommendations for management of habitat and conservation of populations, implementing applied conservation projects, and providing education. I am currently available for collaborations with individuals and teams.
