    I investigate what behavioural flexibility is and whether it is responsible for invasion success in an urban bird species, the great-tailed grackle. I also examine why brain size varies in the wild, using 1,300+ red deer from a long-term study in Scotland. 

    It is great being back at Murray Edwards College where I can walk on the grass and enjoy the gorgeous gardens. I participate in the She Talks Science blog, the Aiming High Conference, and the Online Mentoring Network. Interacting with the next generation of women in science is so inspiring!
