About Me

I am a PhD Student in the DuRant lab at the University of Arkansas, and I am primarily interested in the effects of climatic variability on wildlife behavior and physiology.

 

As a 2021 NSF Graduate Research Fellow at UArk, I am using the Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis) to determine how changes in natural thermal variability affect nest choice, parental care, and offspring phenotype.

 

My undergraduate work focused on how climate change will impact the breeding behavior of the dung beetle Phanaeus vindex, and I contributed to a project investigating the breeding behavior of Lathrotriccus grisceipectus, a rare flycatcher in Ecuador. This work was done in the Sheldon Lab at the University of Tennessee.
