In my doctoral work, I study ecological and evolutionary dynamics of adaptation. Specifically, I use population genetics to understand microgeographic variation in amphibian populations.
I am also interested in road ecology, assessing and improving methods for mitigating the negative effects transportation infrastructure poses for wildlife and the environment.
I am an ardent enthusiast and advocate for designated Wilderness Areas. I have pursued research avenues in this field ranging from policy development, to social science research, to philosophical studies.
