Research Areas


The Branch Lab is housed at The University of Western Ontario and part of the Advanced Facility for Avian Research and Center for Animals on the Move.

Research in the Branch Lab aims to understand how environmental variation shapes behavior, particularly in avian systems. We are interested in how communication signals evolve to convey information.

Along with talented collaborators, we investigate cognitive variation associated with environmental heterogeneity and the contribution of female mating choices to maintaining cognitive adaptation.
