I am broadly interested in the interaction of physiology, behavior, and ecology in reptiles. Feeding and digestion are optimal to examine this interplay as acquisition of nutrients can affect all aspects of an organism's biology. I am particularly interested in diet specializations and their relationships to changes in behavior, physiology, morphology and ecology.
