Research in our lab is broadly focused on the ecology and evolution of antipredator adaptations in animals, and in particular the use of chemical defenses and aposematism. Most of our research surrounds the study of brightly colored poison frogs and their alkaloid-based chemical defenses. Research in the lab incorporates a variety of comparative and experimental approaches (both lab- and field-based), and includes aspects of ecology, evolution, behavior, natural history, and frog/arthropod chemistry.
I am always interested in mentoring students looking to pursue an M.S. in Biology, and am seeking curious, hard-working, motivated students that have research interests similar to mine.
If you are interested in a Master's degree, please send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a brief statement of your interests (1-3 paragraphs).
I plan to accept 1-2 new graduate students in Fall 2021.
Research for Undergraduates
I am always interested in providing research opportunities to undergraduates. You do not need a special set of skills to begin research in the lab - instead, you need to be genuinely interested in research, and motivated to learn new things.
If you are interested, please send me an e-mail (email@example.com) or stop by office (Dolan W211) or lab (Dolan W110/W108).
