Overview

See my main research website here: http://people.duke.edu/~pag16

I study how animals gather information (termed "assessment") and make decisions in contexts including contests and mate choice. I'm interested in understanding the behaviors animals use during assessment and how these behaviors are underlain by physical mechanisms including biomechanics and physiology.

For my Ph.D., I showed how mantis shrimp (Stomatopoda) use the ritualized exchange of high-force strikes to assess ability during one-on-one contests over territory. As a postdoc with Steve Nowicki at Duke, I tested how zebra finches perceive the orange-red coloration they use as a signal during mate choice and aggression.

At Univ. Exeter, I will extend my understanding of one-on-one (dyadic) contests to test concepts in intergroup contests--contests that occur between groups of social-living animals. Working with Michael Cant and the Banded Mongoose Research Program, I will test how concepts from dyadic contests extend to explain the dynamics of intergroup contests.
