I am a professor of conservation biology at UC Davis. My research focuses on providing the best available science to understand and prevent the loss of species. I work mostly with reptiles and amphibians, two groups of animals with many imperiled species that are widely overlooked, but which often serve important roles in sustainable ecosystems. These species are frequently at the center of important policy debates about how we use our water and land in the US and beyond. The reasons for their declines vary, so my work has by necessity included studies of habitat loss, spatial patterns of animal distributions and movement, and the use of field studies and computational models to understand how these organisms respond to a changing world.
