My current research investigates the role that behavioral plasticity plays in the evolutionary process. I'm using the Trinidadin guppy model system to address this question and am focusing on mating and foraging behavior as well as aggression as a personality trait. I am fortunate that the nature of my questions and my study species are so accessible and exciting to young audiences allowing me to spend much of my time engaging the next generation of scientists through hands-on outreach programs.
