I study how organisms interact with and are impacted by novel environments and global change. In particular I focus on urban and suburban environments as well as the urban-wildlife interface. My research also occasionally centers in agricultural and forestry contexts. As a herpetologist, I tend to study turtles, frogs, salamanders, and lizards and have a strong applied, conservation theme to the work I do. Because many of my study species are aquatic, an important aspect of my work is ecotoxicology and understanding which contaminants impact sexual development and function and whether populations of wild amphibians can rapidly evolve to live in urban environments. As part of this line of work, I have helped establish the emerging field of urban evolutionary biology.
