I earned my Ph.D. from Texas Tech University where I studied population genetics of endangered crocodiles in Belize, C.A. and have been at USF for the past 11 years where my research falls under the broad category of conservation genetics. It is my goal to use genetics as a means of better managing threatened wildlife.
Projects range from local - working on population genetics of Rana boylii - to global, identifying new species from Myanmar. For more detailed info check out these links:
