My primary research interests are animal behavior, behavioral ecology, and evolutionary biology. Although most of my own research involves field work with birds, my senior project students have pursued laboratory and field projects on a wide variety of organisms, including insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.
