Students interested in research experiences

Iā€™m very interested in providing research opportunities to undergraduates who are excited about ecology, evolutionary biology, or wildlife conservation. My research page and publications should give you a good idea of the type of projects going on in my lab. Students conduct research with me during the academic year through independent study and the HWS Honors Program, and students work with me in the summer as part of the HWS Summer Research Program. Research opportunities in my lab may involve field sampling, molecular genetics in the lab, statistical and geospatial analysis of big datasets, or a mix of these approaches.

Extensive research experience is NOT required to work with me. The most important things I look for in research students are excitement about ecology and evolution and a strong work ethic. If you are interested in working with me, please stop by my office or email me with a description of your interests.
