My Ph.D. research project investigates relationships among chipmunks (genus Tamias) and the intra-specific relationships of their ecto- and endoparasites.  Please see the links at the bottom of the page for more information about my past and current research (a work in progress!), the Cook Lab, and my coursework at UNM.  I am also involved with an NSF-funded Research Coordinating Network, Advancing Integration of Museums into Undergraduate Programs (AIM-UP!).  The goal of AIM-UP! is to explore ways to increase undergraduate exposure to museums and natural history collections, please visit the AIM-UP! site for more information.
