I am using the incredible diversity of mechanisms that produce animal coloration to understand the evolution of signal production.
I am studying how animal signals interact during use, to create unique signal properties.
I am studying how an animal’s ecology and signaling environment shape the evolution and diversity of signals.
I am a behavioral and evolutionary ecologist interested in animal communication and signal diversity. My research focuses on understanding the interactions between animal signals, behaviors, natural history, and the environment. I primarily study these topics using hummingbirds and wood warblers as study systems. I am currently a post-doctoral fellow with Dan Mennill at the University of Windsor, and I completed my PhD in animal behavior at Arizona State University with Kevin McGraw.
