I am interested in the ecology and reproduction of birds, invertebrates, and plants, as well as the social and environmental conditions under which related behaviors occur. I am also dedicated to understanding and documenting biodiversity and natural heritage. Prior students in my lab have primarily focused on interactions between ants and the environment, including foraging in relation to colony attributes and environmental conditions, distributions of colonies in populations of different size, and distribution of ant species across Oklahoma. I am currently a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Natural Resource Management at South Dakota State University working in the lab of Dr. Michele Dudash and Dr. Charlie Fenster.
