Explores the ecological consequences of individual variation in behavior for individuals, populations, and communities.
I study how animals use and move through the space they occupy, because I believe this framing offers a unique perspective on myriad aspects of animals’ behavioral ecology.
My research focuses on the behavioral ecology of animal societies, especially how individuals' differences in behavior can alter the execution of collective behaviors and the transmission dynamics of microbes.
My work resides at the interface of animal personality research and community ecology.
My research explores the effects of animal personality on collective behavior and colony success.
