My Research Interests
I am a PhD Student in the Sarah Durant lab at the University of Arkansas, and I study the effects of temperature on avian breeding behavior. As a Doctoral Academy Fellow here at UArk, I am curious as to the impact temperature has on the breeding behavior of the Eastern Bluebird, Sialia sialis.
My undergraduate work focused on how climate change will impact the breeding behavior of the dung beetle Phanaeus vindex as well as breeding behavior of Lathrotriccus grisceipectus, a rare flycatcher in Ecuador. This work was done in the Kimberly Sheldon Lab at the University of Tennessee.
