Integrative Organismal Biology

    ​I use field and lab approaches to study wild birds from an integrative perspective. My research falls at the intersection of physiology, evolution, ecology, and behavior. I use techniques from endocrinology and immunology to bio-acoustics and behavioral observations. I generally work on questions relating to breeding biology, life history trade-offs, and sexual selection. Find more about my research on this website.
