I am interested in the physiological and morphological basis of behaviors critical to individual fitness, especially prey capture and locomotion.

Although I am broadly interested in functional morphology and comparative physiology, my research focuses on several specific aspects of these disciplines:

  • evolutionary physiology: the evolution of behaviors and their associated physiological systems
  • environmental functional morphology: the relationship between animal performance and survival in the wild
  • biomechanics: the physical constraints that intrinsic and extrinsic factors place on behaviors
