Research information:

My research program is at the interface of ecology, behaviour, and physiology. All physiological processes are temperature dependent. Thus, since reptiles are ectotherms, variation in their body temperature affects all of their developmental and behavioural processes. Hence, body temperature ultimately has a significant impact on fitness. The general goal of my research program is to understand how temperature affects the ecology of reptiles

Research information:

Research in our lab concerns the most fundamental and persistent puzzle of nature: the origin and maintenance of biodiversity. Or, put another way, we are trying to answer the age-old question, why are there so many species in the world? To do this requires that we study the evolutionary process as it unfolds, keeping track of the variety of genotypes and phenotypes in a population or community through time, a task that would be very challenging with any large, long-lived organism. For this reason, we use microbial populations of bacteria and protists to study the evolutionary process in the laboratory. Topics of interest in the laboratory include the relationship between environmental variation and diversity, the genetics of adaptation, evolutionary medicine, and the evolution of social interactions.

Research information:

Climate change is pushing species to extinction. Climate change also changes the impacts of other factors, like agriculture, that affect whether a species will go extinct. My work addresses an array of topics around these themes with particular emphasis on finding ways to reduce extinction rates in Canada and globally.

Research information:

The major goal of my research is to understand how cognition (learning, memory and decision-making) is shaped by the selective environment. My research is focused on avian foraging and social behaviour, using mainly experiments in the field but also captive studies, as well as comparative methods. I use an integrated approach, drawing from behavioural ecology, cognitive ecology and evolutionary ecology.
