I am interested in harnessing comparative and integrative approaches to understand the evolution of social behavior, specifically the regulation of reproduction. I aim to explore the roles of neuroendocrinology, transcriptomics and sexual dimorphisms throughout ethologically-relevant contexts. I am a graduate student in Hans Hofmann's laboratory.
