My research revolves around using genetic techniques in the conservation of herpetofauna. Herpetofauna are the most endangered vertebrate clade on the planet, and yet many of their natural history traits are cryptic, making the study of both their natural history traits and the effects of anthropogenic difficult to study. Genetics can offer evidence, which is often counterintuitive, on many of these traits and processes. Steven is a Ph.D. student working with Dr. Rod N. Williams.
