RESEARCH EXPERIENCE

Summer 2000            Initiated a turtle mark-recapture study in a system of urban drainage canals in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana, under guidance from Dr. Richard Seigel.

Fall '02 -- Spring '03            Field assistant to Dr. Brian Crother’s graduate student Joe Ramspott working in Manchac Wildlife Management Area in St. John the Baptist Parish, Louisiana. Goals included updating the herp species list and examining amphibian recruitment along transects in near-pristine versus open marshes.

Fall 2003            Under the guidance of Dr. Dennis Mullen, examined intraspecific interactions of Banded Sculpin (Cottus carolinae) in a first order stream in Cannon County, Tennessee.

Fall 2003            With major professor, Dr. Vincent Cobb, explored movements of a litter of neonate Timber Rattlesnakes (Crotalus horridus) in Rutherford County, Tennessee using radio-telemetry.

Winter ‘04 – Spring ‘05            Field assistant for Dr. Brian Miller’s graduate student Richie Wyckoff, who investigated the migration patterns and chronology of five species of ambystomatid salamander in Coffee County, Tennessee. Work consisted of checking drift fence arrays and minnow traps around and in an ephemeral wetland, and processing and marking individuals.

Spring/Summer ‘04            Field technician for Dr. Brian Miller’s inventory of herpetofauna at Stones River National Battlefield in Rutherford County, Tennessee. Visual encounter surveys, drift fences, minnow taps, cover boards, hoop traps and deep-water crawfish nets were employed.

Summer ‘04 – Spring ‘06              Field assistant for Dr. Brian Miller’s graduate student Matthew Niemiller, who is examining the phylogenetics of the Tennessee Cave Salamander complex, Gyrinophilus palleucus. Work entailed capturing individuals in stream caves and then processing them for standard measurements, getting tissue samples, and inserting alpha numeric tags to identify individuals.

Summer ‘04 – Fall ‘05            Initiated a mark-recapture study of freshwater aquatic turtles at Reelfoot Lake, Tennessee. In this time period 2469 individual turtles of 9 species were captured. Experience included using digital radiography on gravid turtles. Hoop nets, drift fences, deep-water crawfish nets and dip nets were utilized to capture turtles.

Fall ‘04 – Fall ‘05             Worked on Master’s thesis examining population dynamics and feeding activity of Sternotherus odoratus at Reelfoot Lake, Tennessee. Deep-water crawfish nets were used to capture turtles, which were then processed for standard measurements, marked by making notches on the marginal scutes with a file, and subsequently released at point of capture.

Fall ‘04 – Spring ‘06             Field technician for Dr. Dennis Mullen’s inventory of fish at Stones River National Battlefield in Rutherford County, Tennessee. Seining, electrofishing and fyke nets were employed.

Fall ‘04 – Spring ‘06             Under the guidance of Dr. Brian Miller, examined reproductive success and distribution of the rare Streamside Salamander (Ambystoma babouri) in middle Tennessee.

Spring ’07 – Fall ‘07            Seasonal Researcher examining the turtle population and assemblage for the Missouri Department of Natural Resources at Big Oak Tree State Park. Deep-water crawfish nets, hoop nets, fyke nets, and basking traps were employed. Captured turtles were processed for standard measurements and then marked.

Spring ’08 – Spring '11            Biological Technician II, then General Biologist I for IAP World Services, Inc., working at the U.S. Geological Survey National Wetlands Research Center under research ecologist Hardin Waddle. Responsibilities include conducting visual encounter and calling surveys for frogs in the Atchafalaya Basin, Big Thicket National Preserve, and Coldwater NWR as part of a project funded by ARMI (Amphibian Research Monitoring Inititiative). We also conducted amphibian surveys at various WRP and agricultural lands in the Delta of Mississippi. We began a project examining population ecology of ambystomatid salamanders inhabiting Kisatchie National Forest.

Spring ’11 – Present            Ecologist with the United States Geological Survey, working at the U.S. Geological Survey Wetland and Aquatic Research Center under research ecologist Hardin Waddle with the Amphibian Research and Monitoring Initiative (ARMI). Responsibilities include conducting visual encounter and calling surveys for frogs in the Atchafalaya Basin and Big Thicket National Preserve. We have also examined the population ecology of ambystomatid salamanders inhabiting Kisatchie National Forest in north central Louisiana. We examined impacts of road mortality of Spotted Salamanders on population viability along the Natchez Trace Parkway in Mississippi. We recently began investigating Gulf Coast Waterdog populations in Louisiana incorporating a disease and genetics component. Lastly, we documented snake fungal disease in Louisiana and have begun pilot work to continue to study the disease and its impacts on snake populations in Louisiana.
