I study the evolution of animal communication. My research is centered on bird vocalizations and combines insights from biacoustics, animal psychology, and evolutionary biology. Sometimes I design systems for high-throughput collection of behavioral data in the lab, while at other times I conduct expeditions in the Andes to describe poorly known behaviors of wild birds. Currently, I work as an Assistant Professor of Evolutionary Neurobiology at Illinois State University.
