My research involves multimodal sexual selection, acoustic divergence, and speciation. For my PhD, I studied barn swallows in North America, Europe, and Asia to quantify variation in feather ornaments and song resulting from different targets of sexual selection across populations. My current work, in the labs of Drs. Dai Shizuka and Eileen Hebets at the University of Nebraska, will determine which acoustic and visual signals predict success in competitive versus mating contexts across different species of Schizocosa wolf spiders. We are employing network methods to visualize and analyze the complex phenotypic data generated from these studies.
