Research in my lab focuses on the social behavior of animals, with an emphasis on the mechanisms, development, and function of vertebrate social behavior. A second area of interest is dispersal, particularly as it relates to social structure and organization. Both of these topics are crucial to our understanding of evolution and to conservation efforts. A third and new area of research is the behavioral ecology of the brown recluse spider (Loxosceles reclusa).
