Brooke joined the lab in 2017 at Virginia Tech before starting at Yale in 2019. She is broadly interested in how ecological context and thermal physiology interact to shape evolutionary trajectories of reptiles. For her Ph.D, Brooke seeks to test hypotheses related to the timing and patterns of trait diversification relating to adaptive radiations.
