We study how animals generate rhythmic motor patterns such as walking, swimming, and flying at all levels from individual neurons to neural networks to muscle response to movement.
Comparative methods, ecomorphology, evolution of locomotor performance, & the selective significance of locomotor performance in lizards and birds.
Mathematical and computational models of individual neurons of the hippocampus to
understand how computation and synaptic modification occur in these cells.
Investigating the evolution of life history traits and the conservation biology of long-lived organisms.
Neurophysiology and psychophysics of the auditory system; neural and behavioral effects of hearing loss; neural coding; computational modeling.
Quantitative wildlife ecology; GIS and conservation planning; impacts of human-induced disturbance on mammal and amphibian populations; wildlife management in data-poor systems.
