PhD Candidate (Animal Behavior Graduate Group)
BS in Entomology from Cornell University
I am broadly interested in what influences the impact of an invasive species and how the response of native species can facilitate persistence or extinction in the face of invasive competitors. Particularly, I’m interested in how levels of among-individual variation in behavior (behavioral variation) influence invasive-native interactions post-invasion, and how these interactions result in reciprocal changes in behavioral variation within both species. My research lies at the intersection of behavioral type dependent species interactions and eco-evolutionary dynamics of species invasions; which I investigate using the invasive brown widow (Latrodectus geometricus) and the native black widow (L. hesperus).
