Quantifying mite load on whiptail lizard

General Statement: I welcome inquiries from those interested in pursuing a Master’s of Science degree in vertebrate ecology with an emphasis in herpetology, ornithology, or conservation biology.

There are ongoing projects in the lab that might be of interest or students may develop their own research projects. If students are interesting in volunteering on the Gateway trapping project and getting experience in wildlife studies, please contact me.

New Postdoctoral Scholar Position starting in Jan 2019. The deadline is Nov 29 but is rolling until filled. The Verde River is a beautiful system for herps and birds and we are looking for someone with spatial skills to predict wildlife habitat along portions of the lower reach. Link to announcement.

I encourage those interested to contact me and to arrange a campus visit so you are able to make a well-informed decision about what life is like in my lab, the ASU’s Applied Biological Sciences program, ASU’s Polytechnic campus, and the PhoenixMesa areas.
