Biography, Education and Training

I am currently a second year graduate student in the Sinervo Lab at the University of California, Santa Cruz. My general interests are in sexual selection and thermoregulation. Specifically, I am interested in the affect climate change is having on ectotherms, particularly the Ambystoma salamander genus, and species behavior changes and acclimation potential to rising temperatures.
