My research is focused on the ecology and conservation of reptiles, particularly snakes.  I utilize mark-recapture techniques and radiotelemetry to address population-level questions involving foraging ecology, reproductive life history, demography, activity patterns, spatial ecology, and habitat selection.  All of these topics are applicable to both basic ecological studies and conservation.  Although all of my past research has involved field studies of semi-aquatic species, I am interested in utilizing other taxa and laboratory studies to address new questions.
