    I am broadly trained in the fields of neuroscience, behavioral ecology, sensory ecology, and neuroethology. Following my undergraduate training, I worked as a research assistant studying the relationship between social behaviors and disease transmission in American crows. I then switched to laboratory-based research for my Masters thesis, where I examined the neurophysiological effects of environmental mold exposure on memory and cognition. For my doctoral research, I trained as a visual ecologist/neuroethologist and used both field-based and laboratory-based research techniques to investigate behavioral and sensory co-evolution among avian brood parasites and their hosts. I currently serve on the editorial board for Ornithology. You can find my publications on Google Scholar.

    I thoroughly enjoy teaching and have taught and mentored students on a wide variety of topics and courses. I am always interested in working with students on research projects that extend beyond the classroom and have mentored numerous students on varied research projects of their choosing.
