ABOUT
Me

From a young age, I have always enjoyed learning about the natural world. 20 years later my enthusiasm for accumulating knowledge has led me to pursue a Ph.D. in ecology and evolutionary biology. In recent years, my passion for learning and my background as a person of color have coalesced into a desire to examine and enrich academic policy. In addition to my academic interests, I am an avid anime, comic book, and rap fan.

MALE MATE PREFERENCE IN LIMIA

When we think of mate preference, we often think of choosy females and competitive males. However, what happens when females and males are choosy? What factors favor male mate preference to evolve? Here I use behavioral analyses to compare male preference of three Limia species.

Thank you for your interest in my research. Please get in touch with me, if you have additional questions, are an undergraduate looking for research experience, or would like to collaborate.
