Research: My research focuses on improving the predictive performance of species distribution models by incorporating hurricane data and field-collected competition data into the models. I am using all ten species of Puerto Rican Anolis lizards as my study system.
Future goal(s): Following my PhD, I would like to complete a postdoc focusing on tropical lizard conservation. I hope to secure a postdoc that allows me to conduct field work in the Caribbean or in South America (most ideally in Ecuador’s Amazon because there are so many little-studied lizard species there!). My ultimate goal is to secure a professor position.
