Hello, my name is Elia Pirtle. I am a PhD student in zoology at the University of Melbourne, Australia, supervised by Dr.s Michael Kearney and Christopher Tracy. My research focuses on the effect of climate change on desert dwelling lizards. I am particularly interested in the effect of hydration state on physiology and behavior, and the resulting role water dynamics might play in shaping species distribution and function.

I am also a scientific illustrator who is always looking for experience in science illustration. If you need an illustration for a logo, a poster, or a paper, or just a nice painting for your office wall, you can email me at eliapirtle@gmail.com. See the “Illustration Work” page for some examples of my artwork.
