My current research examines the biodiversity of helminth parasites of ephemeral hosts: anuran tadpoles. I am also examining the community structure of helminth parasites within anuran tadpoles. In doing so, I am determining which host factors affect helminth community structure (such as diet, habitat, size, time spent in pond, etc.)
