Conservation biology theory is unique because it is a response to the biodiversity crisis. I also enjoy teaching herpetology because these are my favorite study animals.
I completed a BS in Zoology from Louisiana State University (1991), an MS in Biological Sciences from Southeastern Louisiana University (1995) and a PhD from the University of Canberra, Australia (2002). I then completed 3 postdoctoral fellowships, 2 from the University of Canberra and one from Australian National University, before taking an Assistant Professor position at Monash University in Melbourne (2009).
In 2011 I moved back to the US to be closer to family. My research focuses on conservation biology, behavioral ecology & evolution, and sometimes their interface. My main research areas are invasive species impacts, climate change responses, threatened species biology and social behavior. I work mainly with reptiles, but also with amphibians, birds and mammals.
The majority of my research is field-based, and I have research programs in the US, Australia, and Madagascar. Field methods include GPS technology, radio-telemetry, remote camera systems, drones, and many types of surveys. Other research interests include wildlife trafficking, anti-predator behavior, and the interface between ecophysiology & development.
