Research InterestsI am interested in how amphibians, reptiles and birds respond to anthropogenic change. I use a variety of methods for addressing this general question. My research with amphibians and reptiles involve the use of eco-physiological and biophysical models for predicting population persistence in changing habitats. I use models for characterizing the change in thermal environments and water availability. I study animal behavior to understand how species shift habitat use as the thermal environment becomes more extreme and as droughts become more pervasive. I use historical data to evaluate changes habitat occupancy of amphibians, reptiles and birds. I integrate evidence of range shifts with biophysical models to predict future distributions.
