Do, or do not. There is no try." Yoda
Currently, I am working on several projects that include: development and
testing of a functional connectivity model for the boreal chorus frog in
the Black Hills of South Dakota; inventory of butterflies in disturbed and
restored habitats in lowland tropical forests of Honduras; and the
behavioral ecology of kin selection in social caterpillars. When mentoring
students, my goal is to not only transfer useful skills, but to also
confer upon them an appreciation for underappreciated organisms.
