Martin Hall 124E
I am a herpetologist and ecologist. My research has mostly focused on the ecology and evolutionary history of freshwater turtles across the Southeastern United States (a global biodiversity hotspot), though I have also participated on studies of other reptiles, amphibians and even arthropods. My research interests are broad, though generally rooted in herpetology, and include (but are not limited to): population genetics and genomics, factors influencing occupancy and distribution of species, and general life history and ecology of poorly-studied herpetofauna.
