Dr. Amélie Fargevieille Postdoc As an undergraduate student in France, I did an exchange program at the University of Oklahoma where I developed my interest for behavioral evolutionary ecology and visual signals working on color polymorphism in female damselflies. Back in France, I completed a master degree in Behavior and Ecology in Saint-Etienne (France), working mainly on population dynamics and the effect of human leisure activities on waterfowls and shorebirds. My Ph.D. project at the University of Montpellier (France) focused on understanding the effect of sexual selection in the evolution of female ornaments, specifically coloration, in female songbirds. I like to test theoretical evolutionary models on natural populations and I’m interested in understanding how spatiotemporal variation affects the evolution of phenotypes. This also fulfills two of my interests: fieldwork and applying statistical tools to long-term datasets. Although I am considered a bird nerd, I am very excited to join the Warner Lab to work with anoles, as they display interesting variation in phenotypes in both males and females
Josh Hall Ph.D. student
I earned my undergraduate degree at Union University in Jackson, TN where I majored in biology and writing, and I recently completed my master’s degree in general biology at Mississippi State. For the past five years I have been teaching biology, earth science, and physical science at a small high school in my home town but now am very excited to leave that behind to join the Warner lab. My academic attention is focused on the evolution, ecology, and conservation of reptiles. I have been married for nearly 12 years to my wife, Amanda, and we have two beautiful children: Hazel and Gray. Check out my website.
Jenna Pruett PhD Student
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Clemson University in May 2016. While I was there, my undergraduate work primarily focused on the relationship between form and function in Pleurodire turtles. I decided to change directions with my graduate research and plan to study maternal effects and nest site choice in western painted turtles.
Kaitlyn Murphy PhD Student
In May 2018, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Iowa State University. My undergraduate work examined the influence of thermal conditions on survival and timing of emergence in hatchling Painted Turtles (Chrysemys picta). I also enjoyed working for the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Program and coaching a youth volleyball team. As a PhD student, I hope to learn more about the development and reproductive biology of reptiles. I am broadly interested in environmental factors, namely that of anthropogenic origin, that can affect development and the morphology, physiology, and survival of offspring.
Sarin "Putter" Tiatragul MS Student
Originally from Nonthaburi, Thailand, I attended Gonzaga University (Spokane, WA) where I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Research Concentration. While I was there, apart from doing research on fiddler crabs, I cheered-on the Zags with the Bulldog Pep Band, worked on recycle/composting programs with the Office of Sustainability, and served as a Resident Assistant (and Assistant Resident Director). As a Master's student in the Warner Lab, I am broadly interested in how animals adapt to urban environments and other human disturbances. My goal is to apply sound scientific skills to tackle environmental issues in Thailand and Southeast Asia. Please visit my website and blog to learn more about my research activity, interest and experiences.
Joseph Jenkins MS Student
A life-long Alabamian, I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology and a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree from Auburn University in 2016. Since 2013, I have worked as a field biologist at the Alabama Natural Heritage Program, conducting field studies with imperiled species including the flattened musk turtle, black warrior waterdog, and eastern indigo snake. My master's thesis explores aspects of home range, activity, and habitat selection of flattened musk turtles (Sternotherus depressus) with the goal of better informing conservation strategies for the species. Fighting to conserve Alabama's imperiled species and learning to live in a manner that is more harmonious and conducive to life on this planet are my passions. Working towards this end, my academic interests lie in continuing to develop skills and knowledge from the fields of ecology, conservation biology, and engineering.
Mallory Turner Undergraduate Student
I am an undergraduate majoring in Organismal Biology. I have specific interests in ecology and conservation. I am passionate about all animals, especially mammals and reptiles. After graduating from Auburn, I plan on attending graduate school and am very open to researching any animal. I am happy to be involved in the Warner Lab and am excited to learn about the world of research!
Allison Dees Undergraduate Student
I am an undergraduate student from Helena, AL studying Wildlife Sciences/Pre-Veterinary Medicine. I am a member of the Auburn University Marching Band and Concert Band as a french horn player. I am the owner of a sweet corn snake and gecko that have inspired me to get involved with reptile research here at the Warner Lab. My dream is to use all of these great experiences to get into Auburn's Vet School, where I will be able to learn how to be an exotics vet. War Eagle!
Chanel Reali Undergraduate Student
I am currently a junior at Auburn University majoring in Integrative Biology. I love learning about the different organisms we share our planet with, and I have recently taken a particular interest in conservation biology. I plan to pursue a career in veterinary medicine, so I am excited for the opportunity to work with reptiles and amphibians and expand my knowledge of these often misunderstood animals. I am looking forward to working in the Warner Lab, and I cannot wait to see what's in store!
Ryan Weesner Undergraduate Student
I am a sophomore at Auburn University majoring in Organismal Biology. I am from Memphis, Tennessee and since middle school, I have been fascinated with animal life and the outdoors in general. In previous summers, I have completed internships and volunteer work at Strawberry Plains Audubon Center in Holly Springs, Mississippi. While working there, I enjoyed learning about conservation and preservation. I'm still searching for the animal or animal group that I want to focus on for my academic and professional career. After finishing my undergraduate degree, I plan on moving on to graduate school.
