Carson Lillard

I’m a Master’s student at Oregon State University doing research on amphibian population decline mechanisms, particularly climate change and infectious diseases.

I study amphibians because they are one of the most imperiled groups of animals in the world but super important ecologically and economically. My interests are looking at how climate change plays a role in disease presence and spread, as well as attempting to model these patterns over time and space.

I am especially interested in high-elevation species and their conservation/management, as well as public land conservation.
