My research focuses on avian behavior, ecology and thermophysiology. I am particularly interested in how predators influence bird behavior and how perceived predation risk interferes with a bird’s ability to thermoregulate and maintain energy reserves in challenging thermal environments. These studies are conducted on a variety of avian species in both the field and lab.
