Recent news in the Todd lab
I am currently considering new graduate applicants to work in my lab via the Graduate Group in Ecology program. Please see my pages for Prospective Students, my Philosophy on science and academe, and ongoing Research in my lab BEFORE contacting me.
Mark Peaden has joined the lab and is currently working in the Mojave desert conducting conservation research with desert tortoises.
The Todd lab is happy to welcome postdoctoral research associate Dr. Aaron Lotz to our lab. Aaron will be working with Dr. Todd and CA Department of Fish and Game to address issues that affect the conservation management of California's reptile and amphibian diversity.
The Todd lab is happy to welcome new PhD student Evan Eskew to the lab. Visit Evan's page for more information.
Melia was also awarded a prestigious 2011 National Defense Science & Engineering Graduate Fellowship for proposed work examining the effects of climate change and invasive plants on desert tortoises, work that could have important implications for the management and recovery of this species on land administered by the Department of Defense.
