Hannah is a systematist and herpetologist interested in herpetofauna in Southeast Asia.


B.S. in Biology, University of Oregon


I am interested in integrating morphology, morphometrics and genomic data to study questions in biogeography, systematics and evolutionary processes of reptiles and amphibians.
