Research Areas

Research: Causes and consequences of genetic variation in behavior. Our lab aims to address fundamental questions in evolutionary and behavioral biology by studying genetic variation in the ways that individuals choose, shape and learn about their environments–especially their social and nutritional environments–and how these processes feed back to influence behavior and fitness.
