I am broadly interested in behavioral ecology, life history evolution and applied conservation. My student's projects focus on a diversity of topics: animal personality, parental care, endocrine-behavior interface, sexually selected traits, aposematic coloration, life history evolution and conservation. My fieldwork focuses on the behavioral ecology of beautiful and easily studied eastern bluebirds and tree swallows. But I encourage students to follow their passion and expertise and this leads to exciting new hypotheses and study organisms.
