Research Interests: 

My research interests include the conservation biology, ecology, and systematics of amphibians and reptiles.  Currently I am working with Ecuadorian biologists to document the herpetofauna of the Volcan Sumaco region of central Ecuador.  I have worked with undergraduate students concerning the population biology and spatial ecology of local snake species.  The Reptiles of South Carolina book has been submitted and is out for peer review.
