I'm currently a PhD Candidate working with Eileen Lacey in the Department of Integrative Biology and the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at the University of California, Berkeley. My research interests concern the behavioral ecology of animals in the context of rapid environmental change. In particular, how do animals develop strategies to cope with unpredictable fluctuations in climate, resource availability, and physical habitat? In addition to my dissertation work, I've also worked on modeling anti-predator behavior and escape decisions in prey animals.
I think a lot about science and write a lot about it, so along with my personal blog here, I write for a collaborative project Dark Matter, where I discuss issues of science, identity, culture, and social justice.
