Biography:

  • I am principally interested in the conservation of amphibians, and their breeding behaviour. 
  • I am currently working on the reasons behind the endangered status of the Suweon Treefrog (Dryophytes suweonensis), the impact of climate change on the breeding phenology of salamanders, toads, ranids and hylids in Korea and the ecology, behaviour, phylogeography and conservation of all anuran species from North East Asia.
