I am a comparative behavioral ecologist investigating the role of behavioral flexibility in rapid geographic range expansions. I use field and lab experiments in great-tailed grackles (an urban bird species in the Americas) and humans to understand what behavioral flexibility is and whether it is a mechanism for surviving in new environments.
