Jaden is a student at the University of Nevada Reno and a 2023 Evolution In Action participant. We asked Jaden a few questions about his experience and interests.
What is your major/degree/program of study?
I am currently an undergraduate student at University of Nevada, Reno. My major is Wildlife Ecology and Conservation.
What are your current career interests?
I would really like to do research in the future. I want to do research on reptiles or amphibians, mainly lizards or salamanders.
Why were you interested in joining the EIA program?
I was interested in joining the EIA program because I thought that this would be a great opportunity for me to learn about this field of study while also getting valuable on the job experience.
What is something cool or interesting that you have seen or learned since you started on the project in Panama?
Since being in Panama I have come to realize that there is much more diversity in the genus of Anolis than I had originally thought. I really enjoy learning about the different species of anoles in Panama.
