I'm an NSF postdoctoral fellow hosted by the Institute for Conservation Research and by Cori Richard-Zawacki's Lab at the University of Pittsburgh. My research focuses on behavioral ecology, conservation biology, disease ecology, and stress, usually in a comparative framework. Right now I study the endangered mountain yellow-legged frog in California, and frogs infected with a fungal pathogen in Pennsylvania. My dissertation research focused on California chipmunks that showed variable responses to a century of climate change. I'm interested in understanding how behavior and physiology allow animals to respond to and cope with environmental challenges and changes. I am also involved with science communication, education, and outreach.
