Broad Research Focus:
The social ontogeny of animals and the evolution of social systems.
Specific Research Focus:
Every social group is the unique product of interactions among individual organisms. Each individual contributes an extended phenotype and life history to the group structure and stability. For a wide variety of social species, these interactions are continued between and across many generations.
My research addresses the influence of social traits (including sex, age, genetic history/relatedness to partners, tenure in a given group, breeding condition, body condition, life history etc) on the role played by given members of a group in maintaining the social system.
How do animals make and maintain relationships?
