Graduate Research Topic
I study body size evolution in Pacific island land snails. I'm particularly interested in how phylogenetic history, abiotic pressures like microclimate and nutrient availability, and immigrant selection impact land snail body size. Comparing body sizes between snails of very different shapes has motivated me to develop new methods for measuring shell size. I am also interested in gastropod terrestrialization and land snail conservation. My undergraduate work at Pomona College (BA, Biology) examined estivation physiology and microhabitat use in southern California helminthoglypt land snails.
