Research Interests

My research focuses on physiological ecology, particularly, the impacts of predation and ambient oxygen concentration on metabolic physiology and energy allocation. I am especially interested in research which has conservation and management applications. I am also involved in science education research focusing on improving student learning gains, content retention, retention in the STEM fields, and perceptions of science.
