Research Interests

My current research is focused on understanding mate choice in songbirds. Through a combination of behavioral and electrophysiological experiments, I’m exploring how female zebra finches perceive and evaluate male courtship songs. A key aspect of my research is investigating the role of experiential and social factors in shaping individual preferences.
