Education

Ph. D. in Quantitative Biology
Dr. Tiffany M. Doan is an evolutionary biologist and ecologist who specializes in the study of reptiles, particularly lizards from Latin America. She has described six lizard species and one snake species as new to science, studied how saurian malaria affects Florida’s lizard species, and examined patterns of speciation in Central and South American reptiles. She is interested in speciation, biogeography, taxonomy, community ecology, and disease ecology. Dr. Doan is also an avid scuba diver and scuba instructor and sensei of the NCF aikido martial arts club. Visit her website here: https://tiffanymdoan.weebly.com/.
