Assistant Professor of Biology


Room:FB 222

Dr. Foster studies the physiological and ecomorphological mechanisms underlying ecological communities, using primarily arboreal reptiles and amphibious fishes as focal systems. Dr. Foster has an integrative research program, which bridges the fields of functional morphology, ecophysiology, comparative biomechanics, and evolution to provide an essential, mechanistic-driven approach to understanding vertebrate zoology in an environmental context.
