Description: 

My major research interests are in the development and testing of cost-benefit models of behavior, and experimental studies of the decision rules used by animals to ensure adaptive behavior in various contexts. The emphasis is on understanding how behaviors maximize individual fitness; this is achieved by experimental analyses of the benefits and costs of the various behavioral alternatives available to the animal.
