Broadly, I am interested in sensory ecology, physiology, and behavior in birds and frogs. I am particularly interested in (1) the role of sensory systems in animal communication, (2) sensory plasticity, and (3) the feedback loops between ecology, behavior and the design of animal sensory systems. I teach Animal Physiology (Bio 228), Sensory Ecology (Bio 389), and The Singing Life of Birds (Bio 105). If you are a student that is interested in my research program, please e-mail me to find out more about opportunities in my lab.
