Research Interests

  • Animal communication and sexual selection, with a focus on understanding why there is such amazing diversity and complexity in animals signals. Current projects address: 1) the causes and functional implications of directional sound radiation in songbirds, 2) sexual selection and acoustic communication in sage-grouse and other Galliformes, and 3) the possible effects of noise from energy development on acoustic communication and breeding behaviors of sage-grouse.

Areas of Emphasis

  • Conservation Ecology


  • Evolution and Ecology
