I joined PERL in fall of 2016. My research will investigate the effects of changing temperature regimes on metabolic function and energy expenditures of Northern and Southern Pacific rattlesnakes. It is important to me to conduct research that will contribute to the ever-growing wealth of data focused on understanding climate change and it's implications for life on planet earth. My past research interests have been reptile spatial ecology and invasion biology but now I am excited to add ecophysiology to the list!
