Julia Riley

Assistant Professor


I am an ecologist with a passion for research on the natural history, behavioural ecology, evolutionary biology, and conservation of amphibians and reptiles.  By integrating theories and techniques across these fields to design and carry-out quantitative research my lab tackles both novel and long-held questions in animal ecology.  My lab's research takes place in both the lab and field and involves many undergraduate and postgraduate researchers.  You can read more about the lab's work on our website: www.rileyecology.com
