Current Research Activities

Biological Systems and Organisms

I am interested in understanding how species respond to changing landscapes, with a strong focus on their potential for adaptation to novel environments. I aim to use the southern African dwarf chameleons (genus Bradypodion) as biological models to break new ground in the subfield of conservation ecology.
