Research Interests

One area of my research is directed at the interaction between two core psychological processes - conditioning and timing. I am interested in how time interacts with and modulates learning during Pavlovian and operant conditioning tasks.

I am also interested in animal competition. My research focuses on group level processes in an attempt to understand how animals structure contests, asking questions about the role of acoustic and visual displays, contest intensity and outcome.
