I am facinated by the process of speciation and adaptation of populations to local environmental conditions and the importance of behavior in contributing to these processes within and among species.  The Hawaiian Islands are an ideal location to investigate the ecology and evolution of species because there exists many endemic species that are found across the highly variable environments of these islands.  I mostly study animals with wings - birds and insects.  Currently, my students and I work with Hawaiian Drosophila, a highly species rich group (500+ species), and the Nene, Hawaiian goose.
