Photo Description


I grew up in Tampa, Florida and earned a B.S. in Environmental Biology from the University of South Florida. While at the University of South Florida, I researched factors affecting infection rates of the chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd)in frogs. I am currently working on my MS, researching amphibian ecology in the Sonoran desert. In particular, my research will examine how the quality of constructed catchments used to supplement water availability for wildlife influence amphibian reproductive success and the proliferation of Bd in isolated desert waters.
