Kevin's past reserach involved work on evolutionary physiology in lizards. Currently he is studying canyon treefrog (Hyla arenicolor) phylogeography, life history, and disease ecology. Other projects include field research on gila monsters (Heloderma suspectum), otoacoustic emissions in vertebrate ears, rattlesnake ecology, etc. His has also been involved in several local inventory and monitoring programs that shed light on changes in local abundance and distribution.
