Research Description

My small research enterprise studies the ecology of insect plant interactions and the biology and conservation aspects of gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus) population in Palm Beach County.  The research in my laboratory is mostly conducted by undergraduate students, which complements my other research interest which is mentoring undergraduate students in research and developing new programs. I am also interested in Biology Education Research and Mentoring.
