Areas of specialization
Population dynamics, species interaction, aquatic ecology

Prior to graduate school, Tom worked as a research technician on population demography projects with several taxa, including birds, mammals, aquatic invertebrates and amphibians. For both his M.S. and Ph.D., he examined species interactions among pond-dwelling larval salamanders, using a combination of laboratory, mesocosm and field methods. Tom also has an active interest in teaching, especially population/community ecology and experimental design/analysis.

Research interests
