Jennifer Sheridan is Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at Yale-NUS College in Singapore. Dr Sheridan has a BS from the University of Chicago, and an MS at the University of Miami. She completed her PhD at the University of California, San Diego, studying reproductive variation in Southeast Asian amphibians. Dr Sheridan has taught biology at the University of California Santa Barbara, and a conservation field course in Namibia, Africa, prior to conducting post-doctoral research at the National University of Singapore, exploring long-term changes in amphibian communities and body size responses to climate change. Recently, Dr Sheridan trained in molecular phylogenetics and evolution with Dr Leslie Rissler at the University of Alabama and Dr Bryan Stuart at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. Dr Sheridan’s research focuses on understanding and quantifying threats to biodiversity in order to better focus conservation efforts and mitigate change. She is currently examining
1) the effects of habitat alteration on amphibian communities,
2) the effect of climate change on organism size, and
3) integrative responses to land use and climate change.
