I am a herpetologist and evolutionary ecologist, with a special interest in freshwater turtles. I recently graduated with a master's degree from Auburn University, where I studied musk turtles (Genus Sternotherus) in the Southeastern US. I also have a growing interest in fishes, mussels, and other stream-dwelling creatures.

New (to me) turtle species for 2021:

Mississippi Map Turtle (Graptemys pseudogeographica kohnii)
Bog Turtle (Glyptemys muhlenberghii)
Northern Pacific Pond Turtle (Actinemys marmorata)
