Research InterestsI am a sensory and behavioral ecologist that studies how altering environmentally relevant information can influence aggressive social behaviors.During my PhD, I focused on the differences in behavior for males and females and how varied ecological contexts could influence these behaviors. Specifically, I asked questions like “do males and females of a species use different sources of information to make behavioral decisions in aggressive interactions?” “Does changing resource availability or the chemical information cocktail alter these decisions?” Current students in my research lab are exploring the effects of sleep deprivation on social relationships, differences in aggression between native and invasive species, and mate selection.
