    Courses: Organisms (BIO114), Ecology and Evolution (BIO124), Teaching in Biology (BIO492), Foundations in Biology I (BIO140), Foundations in Biology II (BIO150), Foundations I Lab: DNA Barcoding (BIO427)

    Research Interests:  Biodiversity monitoring, eDNA species detection, DNA barcoding, STEM Education, Course embedded research experiences (CUREs),  Disease Ecology, Herpetology, Mycology, Amphibian Conservation

    I am interested in answering questions related to biodiversity monitoring, species detection, species identification, and disease ecology using a combination of field, molecular, statistical, and bioinformatic techniques. Model systems include (1) amphibian chytridiomycosis, a disease linked to global amphibian population declines and (2) biodiversity monitoring in local areas such as the JMU arboretum and Shenandoah National Park. I am also interested in using DNA barcoding to integrate authentic research experiences into large enrollment introductory bio courses and demonstrate how tools from disparate fields like molecular biology, field biology, and bioinformatics can contribute to species conservation.
