Meet The Colleagues
I coordinated the statewide South Carolina Ivory-billed Woodpecker research project, hired by the Nature Conservancy to see if the recent audio and visual sightings of the presumed extinct woodpecker were true. Unfortunately, we never found the woodpecker. I transitioned back to school at the University of Texas, where I am a doctoral student in the Evolution, Ecology, and Behavior program. My research will focus on global climate change and its impacts on biodiversity, although I will also be doing some work on local (endemic) species, such as the Jollyville Plateau Salamander found only in 2 counties in Texas, and nowhere else in the world (see photo gallery).
Matthew's Service Bio
I taught biology, chemistry, and mathematics at a Don Bosco school in Sierra Leone, Africa. I also began a small scientific study, involving students at the school, examining the diversity and abundance of amphibian species in the area.
