Research

My research includes the impacts of human actvity (habitat management and agriculture) and exotic species on native species distributions, particularly amphibians. My dissertation concerned the effects of forest silviculture management on distribution of amphibian species of conservation concern in the Southeastern United States. I am now a postdoctoral researcher examining the influence of pesticides and environmental variables on schistosomiasis prevalence in humans in Senegal, Africa.
