Overview

  • My training is in behavioral ecology, with a focus on how evolutionary forces shape social and sexual behavior. I’m particularly interested in how these two behavioral spheres overlap: in a gregarious species, how do social dynamics affect individual reproductive success?

    I am equally passionate about incorporating progressive, evidence-based teaching practices into my courses in ways that promote active learning and inclusivity. I aim to teach students *how* to think more than *what* to think, and to provide them with ideas and skills they can take far beyond UNH.
