Research Interest

Hi, I'm Malle (pronounced Maya). I am currently researching populations of the southern copperhead (Agkistrodon contortrix contortrix) in and around Memphis. I am specifically interested in the consequences of urbanization on spatial ecology, physiology, and genetics in copperheads. We use radio telemetry to actively follow tagged snakes in Overton Park and Meeman Biological Field Station. If you are an undergraduate interested in participating in our research, please email me @ mfcrrsco@memphis.edu.
