Sexual selection and speciation.
B.Sc. 2005, University of Missouri
My current research focuses on character displacement in two species of sympatric katydids in the Trans-Pecos region of Texas. I am interested in how sexual signal competition affects male and female choice, and the role of mate choice in reproductive isolation.
