I am very happy to be able to finally announce that I will be returning to Borneo after a 10 year hiatus as part of an NSF Funded research project in collaboration with Jake Esselstyn at LSU! We will survey for small mammals across locations lacking vouchered specimens in order to test if Borneo contains unique areas of endemism (as seen in many other Sundaic islands). This four-year grant will support a graduate student, postdoctoral fellow and molecular technician. Stay tuned for exciting developments!
