Me with Hypsiboas faber, the Blacksmith tree frog

I study the effects of current and historic habitat fragmentation on amphibian genetics and disease. This involves fieldwork in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. This year my fieldwork is focused on sampling frogs from a fragmented landscape and a nearby pristine, continuous forest. My work was funded by a Rackham Graduate Student Research Grant.
