Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
I am a behavioral and cognitive ecologist (a.k.a ethologist) that focuses on the causes of individual variation in decision-making, personality, and learning in animals. I've previously worked on bee memory, sociality in fish, and bird songs. I am an advocate of mental health and equity, diversity, and inclusion within the sciences.
