    Research Interests:
  • Behavioral ecology and evolutionary ecology. I study evolutionary mechanisms of variation in social behavior and social organizations. My primary empirical interests are in understanding mating systems, particularly social monogamy, the most frequent mating system in birds. I have devoted much of my efforts to understanding the co-occurrences of genetic polyandry (broods sired by more than one male) and social monogamy. In these studies I use DNA markers to infer genetic relationships between individuals. I also study the evolution of progeny sex ratios and patterns of parental favoritism towards one sex of offspring versus another (that may derive from similar selection pressures as the sex ratio itself). In the past I devoted time to exploring an interface of politics and science, namely between evolutionary biology and feminism. Lately, I have been studying how offspring viability selection affects variation in components of fitness for breeders. I am particularly interested in fecundity compensation by females.
