Bird cognition group on Twitter


I have broad research interests in behavioral ecology, neuroethology and evolutionary biology. I study these topics primarily in the acoustic communication systems of anurans and insects. More about my current and previous research can be found by clicking on the tabs above.

I'm currently a senior postdoctoral research at University College Cork, Ireland, where I am working on an exciting new project on the evolutionary ecology of cognition in a wild bird population. 

I just finished up a quick gig as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where I was studying multimodal signaling and signal perception in frogs under the supervision of Dr. Gerlinde Hoebel (was also there in 2012).

Prior to that, I was working as a postdoctoral research fellow at Humboldt-University in Berlin with the behavioral physiology group led by Dr. Bernhard Ronacher courtesy of a US NSF international postdoctoral research fellowship.

I did my Ph.D. research at the University of Missouri under Dr. Carl Gerhardt. This research involved studies of communication behavior in extreme competitive environments, including signaling plasticity and aggressive signaling and assessment during contests. 

Prior to that I had brief stints at the University of Texas-Austin and the University of Louisville, and received my undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, where I first worked with frogs and acoustic communication under Dr. Allison Welch.

Whew, that's a lot of affiliations! Scientists definitely get around!
