I am an evolutionary ecologist interested in the evolution of ecology, morphology, and performance. I primarily study amphibians and reptiles, and my research answers questions about evolution at or above the species level by using phylogenetic comparative analyses and statistical modeling. For this research I analyze many types of data, including phylogenetic, biogeographic, whole-organism performance (e.g., jumping, swimming), morphological, and ecological data. While I have done large-scale analyses on previously published data, most of my research focuses on data that I have collected via fieldwork or work in museums. Please look at "Research" and "Fieldwork" for more in-depth information about my research.
