Research Interests

  • I study the evolution of behaviors that underlie population or community ecology patterns. Much of my work has focused on predator-prey interactions in aquatic systems; however, I have also studied mating and social behavior, life history evolution, and animal personalities. Recent projects have focused on ecological invasions, effects of behavior on parasite transmission and behavioral responses to human-induced rapid environmental change.

Areas of Emphasis

  • Integrative Ecology, Conservation Ecology


  • Environmental Science and Policy
