I am an integrative biologist with a fondness for wild places. I study how hormones and the brain generate variation in behavior and connect this variation to fitness consequences in the wild. Therefore, I’m especially interested in differences within- and among-individuals. I study variation and covariation at these two levels and use sexual behavior and stress physiology as the phenotypic attributes of interest. My lab uses wild birds and frogs as study organisms.
