Ecology and Evolutionary Biology of FishesBarred_Lake_Nicaragua_Midas_cichlid

The primary goal of my research is to better understand the origins of biodiversity, with a focus on evolution of diversity in social behavior. In addition, my students and I study behavior, physiology, and ecology in an applied context to contribute to the conservation and welfare of wild and captive animals.

Diverse species of fishes are studied both as model systems, and as subjects of inquiry in their own right.
