I am interested in animal behavior and how it relates to individual variation, as well as its role in shaping the ecology and evolutionary trejectories of populations and species. Additionally, my interests lie at the intersect of theoretical and applied work, with a focus on applying the knowledge gained from research to help guide the decisions of conservation practitioners in their efforts to conserve species of concern. Through my work, I wish to gain a better understanding of how environments shape plasticity of behavior and other correlated traits that contribute to differences in life histories. Currently, my research explores differences in behavior and survival of a Colorado State threatened species of fish, the Arkansas darter (Etheostoma cragini), reared in the hatchery versus wild environments, and how traits essential for surviving predation differ between them.
