Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience
My research is motivated by two central questions: 1) what are the neuroendocrine mechanisms of social behavior, and 2) how do neuroendocrine mechanisms generate individual and species differences in behavior? My previous work focused on the neuroendocrine mechanisms that generate seasonal variation in group size in sparrows. At Bowdoin, I am exploring how different neurochemical systems organize social behavior in a two species of teleost fish, the zebrafish and the goldfish.
