My dissertation research employs both field and experimental approaches to predict the distribution of amphibian pathogens and the consequences of infection on ecosystems.

Specifically, I collect water samples in search of environmental DNA (eDNA) to monitor amphibians and their pathogens to inform appropriate management actions. For more information, visit

Additionally, I employ complimentary experiments to test for cascading effects of amphibian pathogens and amphibian declines on aquatic systems.
