Schuyler was a member of the Hopkins Lab during the summer of 2016 while participating in the NSF-funded Research Experience for Teachers program, and worked directly with graduate student Sydney Hope on the wood ducks project.  He is currently beginning his third of teaching Biology and Ecology at William Fleming High School in Roanoke, Virginia, and previously taught two years of Marine Science and Biology at Columbia High School in Lake City, Florida. He earned a Bachelor’s in Biology from the University of Virginia in 2005, and worked on a Master’s degree in Marine Ecology at The University of Florida from 2007 to 2012.

Schuyler is interested in fostering partnerships between research institutions like Virginia Tech and high school science programs, and is currently developing curricula for his high school science classroom that involves students incubating and hatching chickens while conducting simple experiments that measure physical and behavioral responses in hatchlings to differences in incubation temperature.
