Who are you? What do you do?
Hi! I am an MS student studying conservation physiology in Eastern Hellbenders, investigating various factors impacting hemoconcentration.
What’s your favorite aspect about your research?
Hellbenders are considered living fossils, and I enjoy educating others about their remarkable adaptations that have prolonged their survival since the Jurassic era!
Your favorite Blacksburg activity!
Pandapas Pond is great for herping!
