Research Interests

I am broadly interested in the plasticity of behavior and how individuals seek out and respond to information in their environment. I am especially interested in how individuals integrate information and experience across various timescales (e.g., recent experience versus rearing conditions), and the exchange of information between individuals. My current research focuses on the causes of individual differences in responsiveness to information, and how responsiveness itself may change with experience. I am also addressing how responsiveness, along with other factors (such as innate biases or resource abundance), may contribute to innovation and the development of novel behaviors.​
