I am interested in the ecology and behavior of small mammals, particularly cryptic species that present challenges to capture and monitor such as shrews and small mice. I have adapted radio transmitters for use with these tiny species (space use and movements of short-tailed shrews) and designed special traps to maximize capture success (ecology of the eastern harvest mouse). I also have a strong interest in science education, and I am especially interested in methods of teaching and learning that improve science literacy for the general population.
