Broadly, research in our lab investigates endocrine and
neural mechanisms underlying distinct behavioral phenotypes. We utilize naturally
occurring phenotypic variation in songbirds to explore how differences in sex, strain,
and morph influence how individuals navigate their environment. With a combination of
basic and cutting-edge methods, our lab seeks to gain a better understanding of how
hormones, genes, and behavior interact to shape behavior.


OPENINGS FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS: Our lab welcomes a highly motivated
laboratory technician and graduate students with interests in neuroscience, genes,
physiology, and animal behavior.
