Exploring evolution and behavior across winged systems

I take an integrative approach to answering longstanding questions about animal communication and sexual signaling. Explaining the mechanisms that underlie condition-dependent signals remains a key challenge in behavioral ecology. My research addresses key hypotheses for honest signaling in display behaviors, diving into genetics and even mitochondrial biology.
In August 2024, I will embark on a new adventure as an assistant professor at University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point! I am excited to bring my science back to where it all began: color variation in house finches.
