I am broadly interested in the evolution of sociality. I am especially like to think about this in the context of the drivers and consequences of social behavior, and the feedback between the two.
I currently explore this topic a using a long-term data set on yellow-bellied marmots at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory in Colorado. Specifically, I use social network analysis to investigate the fitness consequences of the social environment. In other words, how is an individual effected by all the interactions of their social group?
I am a 1st year Ph.D. Student in the Blumstein Lab in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UCLA.
