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 the diversity of exaggerated traits and animal communication. I study these topics using visual signals as a model primarily in birds. I am currently a post-doctoral fellow with Stephanie Doucet at the University of Windsor, and I completed my PhD in animal behavior at Arizona State University with Kevin McGraw.
