Behavioral endocrinology of birds and mammals. The influence of sex hormones and stress hormones on reproductive behavior and success. Current research projects in my lab include the relationships between mating systems (e.g., monogamy and polygamy), sex hormones and parental behavior in wild rodents, the reproductive and behavioral endocrinology of a highly endangered species (the Guam kingfisher), and the effects of capture stress on sex hormone secretion in wild rodents. I have a continuing interest in the reproductive and stress endocrinology of Magellanic penguins, the study species for my dissertation research.
