About me

Very broadly, I am interested in immune function, animal coloration, nutrition, and behavior from physiological, evolutionary, and ecological perspectives. I work with motivated students to investigate the physiology underlying ornamentation, reproductive behavior, eggshell coloration, immune function, and other topics that are driven by the interests of the student.
