Graduate student:
Kathryn Greene
Kathryn received her BS in biology from Davidson College in 2018. At the Davidson College Herpetology lab, Kathryn investigated the dispersal behavior of juvenile spotted salamanders and assisted with many long-term lab projects including monitoring the diamondback terrapin population at Kiawah Island. Working with Dr. Steven Price, Kathryn is investigating the effects of mountaintop removal mining and valley filling on stream salamander populations. Kathryn’s interests include hiking, camping, conservation biology, and herpetology.

Grad student:
Luc Dunoyer
I am a French guy who wanted to see the world. That’s why after my master degree in Dijon, France (the wine, bread, and cheese country) I decided to cross the Atlantic ocean just to see what is on the other side. Now I am a PhD student co-advised by Dr. Ashley Seifert and Dr. Jeremy Van Cleve. My personal scientific focus relies on inter-species interactions, species behavior, and ecosystem engineering using crayfish in freshwater streams. If you are interested in working on these thematics, just shoot me an email, I always welcome motivated folks.
