I have recently assisted biologists from the Mississippi Museum of Natural Sciences and the U.S. Geological Survey with studies on salamanders near the Natchez Trace, and am working to develop collaborative projects with those biologists that will involve Mississippi College students. In the summer of 2013 we will examine dispersal and rates of roadkill in spotted salamander and marbled salamander metamorphs.
When I'm not teaching or doing research I like to spend time improving my skills as a nature photographer. A few of my photos can be seen at the link below.
