I'm currently a Postdoctoral Fellow working with Dr. Kaitlyn Gaynor in the Department of Zoology and the Biodiversity Research Centre at the University of British Columbia. 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 changes in climate, resource availability, and physical habitat? How do these strategies influence their distribution on the landscape? 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.
