My research interests include the evolutionary ecology of terrestrial animals and plants. I have used seed-eating desert rodents to explore factors that determine the number and phenotypic attributes of coexisting species in a community.
In spite of Emerita status I remain active in teaching and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students, including those at the University of Arizona, through several informal and formal avenues (please see the linked CV).
BA, Biology, cum laude, Vassar College, 1971
