I’m a behavioral ecologist interested in social relationships, cooperation, and individual variation.
I’m also a PhD candidate and member of the Carter Lab at Ohio State University in Columbus, OH, USA.
For my dissertation, I work with common vampire bats to answer a few primary research questions:
- How and why do individuals vary in their propensity to cooperate with strangers?
- Does short-term proximity facilitate the development of long-lasting cooperative relationships?
- Can we control partner choice by experimentally manipulating opportunities to cooperate?
For more info on what the bats and I might be up to, check for updates here.
