Research Interests
I am broadly interested in spatial ecology and conservation biology of reptiles and amphibians, with a particular focus on Mexican herpetofauna. My dissertation relies primarily on arboreal alligator lizards (genus Abronia) as a study system. I am currently applying radio telemetry, GIS, and interview techniques to help find solutions to socioecological issues facing these lizards, their montane forest habitats, and local communities. Key Words: Spatial ecology; GIS; conservation biology; neotropical herpetology
