Through the integration of physiology and ecology, I study costs of reproduction, and how these costs influence resource partitioning, reproductive performance and life history traits of mammals and other vertebrates. This takes into account patterns of nutrient utilization, reproductive processes, parental investment, as well as the mechanisms that underlie such functions. Thus, my research takes me into both the field and the lab - working with both the internal and external environments of an animal.
