My independent research examines the effects of roads on reptiles and amphibians in insular systems. As roads are an environment with high human-wildlife interaction (i.e. roadkill), it is an interesting system to study ecological effects of linear infrastructure. I am collaborating with researchers at the Taiwan Endemic Species Research Institute (TESRI) and citizen scientists from the Taiwan Road Observation Network (TaiRON), as well as utilizing live animal occupancy data I've collected in the field. I have also collaborated with road and spatial ecologists at the University of Melbourne to model the ecological effects of roads. I received a NSF East Asia and Pacific Summer Institute (EAPSI), a Fulbright Research Fellowship (Taiwan), and an Australian Endeavour Research Fellowship to pursue my research in Taiwan and Australia.
