Research Interests: I am an organismal biologist that loves animal behavior, behavioral ecology, and evolutionary biology. I am particularly excited by the evolution of social groups, including cooperation and conflict that exists among individuals within groups. In addition, I involved in the creation and development of scientific illustrations that clarify complex scientific processes in a visually simplified presentation.
