I am a behavioral ecologist working in diverse systems. My research examines the factors that influence animal foraging decisions including perception, learning, social learning, and memory. I am particularly fascinated by the role of animal cognition in shaping ecological communities. Current projects are focused on how bee behavior influences pollination ecology.
