I am a biologist who primarily studies functional morphology, biomechanics, muscle physiology, ecomorphology and herpetology. My fascination with the family Chamaeleonidae has resulted in much of my research utilizing these animals as models for the principles I study and in expanding my work to broader questions about the biology of these animals. I have worked with chameleons since 1997, having worked with more than 60 species to varying degrees in captivity and having studied them in many of their native and introduced habitats. I am also a member of the IUCN Chameleon Specialist Group (CSG).
