Animal Communication • Animal Color • Animal Behavior • Parent-Offspring Communication
I am a scientist interested in the causes and consequences of complexity in animal signaling systems. For my Ph.D., I examined dynamic color signaling in chameleons with Kevin McGraw at Arizona State University. I came to the Cornell Lab to work on the unique collection of bird-of-paradise natural history recordings in the Macaulay Library. I examine complexity in animal signals by studying the extreme displays of birds-of-paradise as well as the territory marking and singing behavior of house mice.
I think it is incredibly valuable to better understand our natural world and the biological diversity it contains!
