Research Interests:
I am a wildlife biologists that works with endangered bat species. Thus, you can often find me out in the forests catching bats well into the night (if you are up that late). Besides catching bats, I also like playing with other various critters you can find in the wild (e.g., snakes, alligators, snapping turtles, owls, warblers, deer, field mice, weasels). My research primarily focuses on the selection of habitat by mammals (primarily bats) and how mammals are able to adapt to environmental changes induced by human activities (e.g., deforestation, forest fragmentation, climate change).
