I am a behavioral ecologist interested in the effects of rapid environmental change. Human activity can quickly alter the environmental conditions organisms face, for example through introduced predators or competitors. I am also interested in how unique behavioral characteristics of individual organisms relate to the ecology of species and communities. Currently, I am studying how native, invasive, and novel predators affect Gambusia geiseri, a mosquitofish endemic to the San Marcos and Comal Rivers in Central Texas. My future research will continue to investigate the behavioral ecology of invasions as well as move into exploring the relationship between morphology and behavior.
