Research in my lab focuses on various aspects of avian behavior. Of particular interest are lateral behavioral preferences, pair-bonding, aggression, resting behavior, exploratory behavior and curiosity, and avian learning and cognitive capabilities. Previous coursework on research methods and statistics are highly desirable. Research involves work with our in-house Budgerigar population and/or gathering behavioral observations of captive Caribbean flamingos or other birds at the Philadelphia Zoo.
