I am a broadly trained ecologist, whose research program draws upon animal behavior, physiology, and evolution, and thus I take a comparative and integrative approach to my research questions. My lab and I are mostly interested in animal behavior at multiple spatial and temporal scales and the underlying physiological mechanisms that mediate those behaviors. Although I am not restricted to any particular taxonomic group, most of our experimental studies on behaviour, colour, and endocrine mechanisms use herpetofauna and the landscape-level studies of animal movement decisions involve mammals.
