Moore Lab

Welcome to the research lab of Dr. Jennifer Moore

Our research focuses on the spatial ecology, population demographics, and conservation genetics of at-risk species. Our overarching aim is to understand the factors that impact movement, functional connectivity (dispersal and gene flow), and population viability. We strive to focus on applied research questions that address anthropogenic impacts to species and that can be used directly for conservation and management. We regularly use tools such as mark-recapture, radio telemetry, GIS, spatial statistics, and landscape genetics. Our research deals with a range of taxa, but tends to focus on amphibians and reptiles because of their unique life history characteristics, and their globally imperiled status.

Latest news from the lab



Our eastern massasauga rattlesnake research was recently featured by National Geographic in a video and news story “Mysterious disease attacks rattlesnakes”!


Welcome to Eve Choi, a new Master’s student starting in the lab this summer. Eve will be studying the morphological and genotoxic effects of bti, a commonly used mosquito control, on amphibians. 


Welcome back to former undergrad researcher Nathan Kudla who will be starting his MS work this winter! Nathan will be studying landscape genetics of Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnakes.
