I am a biologist interested in the evolution of the sexes, and all that this entails!
Most observable life on earth comes in two types, female and male. Why are sexes so ubiquitous? Why do sexes look similar in some species while in others look entirely different from each other? Why does behavioral and morpholigical variation exist within sexes? My research examines these questions from a variety of perspectives including sexual and social selection, behavioral ecology, animal communication, and sensory ecology.
I am currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at Cornell University. My co-advisors are Mike Webster and Dustin Rubenstein (Columbia University).
