Research Interests

My research interests include avian behavioral responses to habitat changes, such as urbanization. Urbanization can alter a habitat's food availability and therefore impact foraging decisions. I'm particularly interested in a bird's ability to forage optimally during times of high energy expenditure, such as nesting.
