Robert Alexander Pyron Faculty Member

Positions

In 2020-2021, I successfully taught "Organic Evolution" for the first time to upper-level undergraduates (BISC2450), and deployed a new, discussion-based student-led approach to "Biogeography and Speciation BISC 6210" for graduate students (including Master's). I conducted successful fieldwork in the southeastern United States, including discovery of seven new species of salamander which I am currently describing. My team published several major papers, including one from my NSF-funded research on salamander diversity (Pyron and Beamer 2020). Finally, I continued service at the department level ( Graduate Studies Committee), college level (Dean's Council), and university level (ARF Advisory Committee). I also volunteered for the Faculty Administrative Leadership Program for AY21-22
