Research/Creative Interests

Most of my research with undergraduates focuses on vocal mimicry in northern mockingbirds. More broadly I am interested in animal behavior, science outreach, and STEM education.

Research/Creative Needs

Most of my research students engage in data collection outdoors with mockingbirds, which eventually leads to statistical analysis and a presentation.

Mentoring Style

  • Typically one-on-one
  • One-on-one or in small groups, depending on the project

Currently looking for a student to apply and work in these programs:

  • Any program/opportunity
  • Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)
  • Elon College Fellows
  • Honors
  • Lumen Prize application
  • Science Outreach

I can mentor a student enrolled in 4998/4999 hours during these semesters:

  • Most Fall/Spring Semesters – email me to ask
  • Not available in Sp’24 when I’ll be in England

Student Qualifications

  • Students in biology, environmental studies, neuroscience, and psychology have found mockingbird research attractive.
