My research interests focus on the ecological and evolutionary physiology of birds and mammals, particularly phenotypic flexibility of thermoregulatory and heterothermic responses. I have worked in a variety of habitats, ranging from the Kalahari Desert of southern Africa to temperate forests in Canada. I have experience in various research techniques, including open flow-through respirometry, temperature-sensitive transponder tags, body composition measurements, telemetry, stable isotope analyses, and behavioural observations. At UMK, I am studying torpor use in Siberian hamsters in response to acute food and water deprivation, as well as flexibility in heat dissipation and water conservation in migratory passerine birds.
