About

I run a Conservation Biology Lab, staffed by passionate and enthusiastic undergraduates, interns, graduate students and lab technicians. We work on various subjects and species, all relating to Ecology, Conservation and Evolution. Specific projects include quantifying and understanding impacts and threats posed to Hawaii's native ecosystems by introduced reptiles such as the Jackson's chameleon, which is from East Affrica and has been established in the Hawaiian rain forests for a number of decades. We have recently shown this predatory lizard is causing serious environmental damage, by direct predation on many endemic Hawaiian organisms including several that are rare and endangered. We recently found 16 rare endemic snails in the stomach of a single chameleon. We are conducting a series of trials aimed at novel and innovative approaches to controlling and reducing the number of chameleons in sensitive forest areas. We also have ongoing work examining the ecology of the Hawaiian Box Jellyfish, which has a regular, and well-known arrival and influx pattern at Waikiki beach, but the mechanisms driving this behavior are not yet well understood, nor are the factors that influence the numbers of jellyfish that arrive at this popular visitor destination. These are just a few examples of ongoing work in my lab. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
