Research Interests

I'm interested in the phyisological mechanisms that allow songbirds to complete their incredible migratory journeys. Specifically, I'm studying the seasonal changes in a bird's capacity to complete migratory flights, from the whole-organism to molecular level. I'm also interested in whether these pre-migratory changes convey an ability to cope with challenging environmental conditions encountered during migration.
