Research Interests: I have completed two field seasons in Fray Jorge National Park, Chile, comparing the fitness consequences of sociality in two ecologically distinct populations of degus (Octodon degus). Broadly, I am interested in studying behavioral ecology in small mammals and hope to apply such knowledge to the conservation of threatened or endangered species.
