I am an organismal biologist interested specifically in salamander evolutionary biology. I study the evolution of sexual dimorphism and monomorphism in various salamander clades. I also have several projects focused on understanding how skin glands are used in communication (which ones, of the many in amphibian skin, produce pheromones?). I enjoy all the teaching I do–from freshman introductory biology classes to senior seminars. If you are interested in working in my lab, please schedule a time to chat. I’m always looking for bright and motivated students to work in my lab.
