Our research interests broadly rest on evolutionary ecology, behavioral ecology, and conservation biology of amphibians. Using research tools such as aquatic mesocosms, behavioral assays, and molecular analyses, our current projects focus on: 1) Sperm competition, 2) Hatching timing plasticity, 3) Maternal effect, and 4) Parental care. In addition, conservation of amphibians is a critical component of my research and teaching. While Bucknell is a primarily undergraduate institution, our department has a master's program.
