Specialty

Our laboratory's research focuses on the physiological ecology of organisms that must survive extended periods of cold and low food resources.  Our lab focuses on two species of marmot, Woodchucks (Marmota monax) and Yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota flaviventris).  Students in my lab study the dynamics of reproductive success and food resource availability as it relates to extreme environments, such as experienced at high mountain elevation (above 10,000 feet).  We also study hibernation biology with a focus on energetics and mechanisms of energy conservation.
