I'm studying cognition in spotted hyenas. In particular, I'm investigating some predictions of the social intelligence hypothesis by examining the social factors that affect inhibitory control and I'm also looking at the effects of urbanization on behavioral flexibility.

Adjunct Research Associate - Fixed Term
I am an evolutionary biologist with a strong background in behavioral ecology. I study the evolution of complex traits, with a particular emphasis on cognitive evolution. I study cognitive evolution at multiple levels (species, population, individual, and genome) and how it is affected by multiple selective agents (e.g. sexual selection, social environment, habitat). I currently do this using stickleback fish, but have worked with birds in the past.

I study how genetic information moves between microbes in the soil matrix.  Specifically, my research focuses on how horizontal gene transfer influences the resiliency of soil microbial communities in the face of environmental change.
