I am a behavioural ecologist who likes to integrate across ecology and physiology to understand how animals live in fluctuating and variable environments. I am particularly interested in how environmental conditions shape reproduction, survival, and life-history trade-offs. My research spans proximate and ultimate levels of analysis, combining behavioural observations and long-term datasets with tools from endocrinology, immunology and physiology to understand the behavioural and physiological mechanisms that allow organisms to survive and breed in unpredictable environments.
I'm an NSERC postdoctoral fellow in the University of Guelph's Department of Integrative Biology, working with Drs. Andrew McAdam and Ben Dantzer (University of Michigan).
I completed my PhD at Columbia University (2017), a MSc at the University of Windsor (2012), and my BSc at Simon Fraser University (2010).
