My research integrates the fields of animal behavior, evolutionary biology, ecology, and genetics to understand the evolutionary consequences and molecular mechanisms of animal behavior.

Off to San Diego for the Drosophila Research Conference. I’ll be giving a poster on our GWAS work in fly behavior.
We welcomed Charley Elizabeth Martin into the world! Now a (slightly more tired) family of four.
Getting settled into our new digs at the University of Arizona in the Department of Entomology.
Our “Male Competition and Speciation” symposium at ISBE2016 was awesome! A great group of speakers working across diverse systems.
A great poster session at ISBE 2016! Check out my ISBE poster.
Finally completed a genome-wide screen for genes affecting behavioral immunity across the DGRP! Looking forward to talking about my results at ISBE2016.
I was lucky enough to help improve science education at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. Check out the results here!
