My research is at the interface of animal behavior and microbial ecology, exploring how an organism's behavior shapes its microbial communities, and how microbial communities, in turn, influence their host's behavioral phenotype. Specifically, I am studying the socioecological predictors affecting microbiome structure in spotted hyenas, and the functional contributions of various body-site specific microbiomes to hyena behavior, physiology, and fitness.
