Briefly, my research focus is on amphibian stress physiology. I study the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis in an amphibian model, Desmognathus ochrophaeus. Specifically, I am focusing on the seasonal changes of the axis in the field and its interactions with the reproductive and immune systems.
