Last week I started in a new position as an Associate Research Scientist at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. Here, I am working to better understand factors associated with the distribution of the state-threatened Black-spotted Newt (Notophthalmus meridionalis), sirens, and Rio Grande Cooters (Pseudemys gorzugi) in south Texas. I’m excited to get settled into this position and help increase our understanding of these unique species in the Rio Grande Valley.
When not doing fieldwork, I will be based out of the newly acquired Port Isabel Research Station in Port Isabel, TX.
As part of this position, please note my updated contact information:
Address: 100 Marine Lab Drive, South Padre Island, TX 78597
