Tell us about your background?
I received my B.S. in Wildlife Science in 1996, M.S. in Conservation Genetics in 1998, and Ph.D. in Evolutionary Genetics in 2007 from Purdue University. Before joining the faculty in 2008, I served as the vertebrate curator and coordinator of laboratory instruction for eight years. During that time I managed the vertebrate teaching collection, taught five courses related to ecology and systematics of vertebrates, and co-authored two field guides: the Salamanders of Indiana and the Turtles of Indiana.
