Integrative biology, combining behavioral endocrinology, immunology, neuroscience, and field biology. In particular, the primary goal of my lab is to examine how maternal cues and nutritional, social, and toxicological stress alter developmental trajectory, physiological and behavioral traits in birds.

We are interested in how an individual’s phenotype, beyond its genetic programming, is shaped by maternal cues, stress hormones, and nutritional and toxicological stressors.
