I am an Assistant Professor of Wildlife Biology at Eastern New Mexico University. As a conservation ecologist and herpetologist, I primarily conduct research involving North American amphibians and reptiles. Recent work has included novel (eDNA, drone) and traditional surveys for surveys for threatened taxa, including the Black-spotted Newt, Rio Grande Cooter, and Lesser Siren. Additionally, I am examining and documenting the introduction and spread of several species of non-native geckos across south Texas. I remain interested in understanding the effects of land use and stressors on amphibians and reptiles through studies involving behavioral ecology, stress physiology, disease ecology, and ecotoxicology. Museum and specimen-based studies remain a large component of my research program and I actively collect voucher specimens.
