Explores the ecological consequences of individual variation in behavior for individuals, populations, and communities.

PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR

Jim’s research focuses on visual ecology, predator-prey dynamics, and the behavioural ecology of amphibians. Much of this work concerns how animal behaviour and evolution responds to multiple selection pressures.

What I am fascinated by is why animals do the things they do. This means I study animal behaviour, and the ecological and evolutionary forces that underpin the amazing variation we see in the natural world.

POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER

Alex’s research integrates all levels of biological organization to explore how environmental stressors interact to threaten animal fitness, and ultimately biodiversity.

After realizing his lack of talent in soccer, Raul began to explore how individual variation arises in nature and how it affects the structure and functioning of populations, communities, and ecological interactions.

Hannah's current research interests include the effects of group complexity on group stability, and role of parasites in group dynamics.

GRADUATE STUDENT

Grant's work explores the mechanistic underpinning and functional consequences of collective behavior in ants. He is currently researching the synchronization of worker activity and polydomy (where one colony lives in multiple nests at once).

GRADUATE STUDENT

James studies how distributions of infraspecific behavioral variation emerge and whether these trait distributions structure food webs and ecosystems.

GRADUATE STUDENT

Brendan’s research interests center around the community-level consequences of intraspecific behavioral variation in both social spiders and herpetofauna.

GRADUATE STUDENT

After spending her undergrad investigating aggression in fruit flies, Janice is now exploring the evolution of social behaviour, cooperation, and collective decision-making.
