During this transition I am slowly updating my website, so some of the contents here are a bit out of date. If you need up-to-date information, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I am a behavioral ecologist and evolutionary biologist working in Mike Sheehan and Kern Reeve's labs at Cornell University. I use theory, experimental work, and long-term data analysis to learn about the ways in which animals (including humans!?) interact with each other and their environment.
Things I'm currently thinking about (the most frequently updated part of this website):
How mothers and offspring shape each other's fitness in the short and long term
The effect of maternal grief on female lifespan (in humans, mostly)
Territoriality in re-wilded mice
Condition-dependent modification of offspring sex ratios
The role of emotions and consciousness in animal decision-making (i.e. how do you feel about how animals feel?)
