I am broadly interested in the coevolution of anatomy and behavior (both within and between the sexes), reproductive morphology, sociobiology, and decision-making processes of animals. During my master’s degree at the University of Western Ontario, I assessed how bats use their sensory systems to respond to cues and resources in their environments under the guidance of Dr. Brock Fenton. My doctoral research at Texas A&M University at Galveston applied comparative and interdisciplinary approaches to assess pre- and post-copulatory mechanisms of paternity control in cetaceans under the mentorship of Dr. Bernd Würsig. I am currently an Izaak Walton Killam Postdoctoral Fellow at Dalhousie University in Dr. Hal Whitehead's lab. My research explores evolutionarily and ecologically significant patterns of distinction between male and female northern bottlenose whales. I am also a research associate in Dr. Patricia Brennan's lab at Mount Holyoke College, where we investigate the morphology and biomechanics of marine mammal genitalia. I am open to collaborations with researchers possessing diverse field expertise and perspectives across a broad range of taxa and study systems.
