Evolution • Sexual Selection • Genomics • Endocrinology

I use an integrative approach to understand how and why birds produce ornamentation, and specifically color. Currently, I study the the endocrine, genomic, and transcriptomic mechanisms of plumage color production in fairywrens, and how this color contributed to reproductive success.
