Quantitative behavioral ecology and evolution

Caitlin Stern, PhD | Omidyar Fellow, Santa Fe Institute

I am an Omidyar Fellow at the Santa Fe Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico. My research interests include cooperation and conflict in kin associations, the evolution of mating systems, and mathematical modeling of behavioral evolution. I did my PhD with Janis Dickinson in the Department of Neurobiology & Behavior at Cornell University, with empirical work focusing on a banded population of western bluebirds at Hastings Reserve in upper Carmel Valley, California. I did my first postdoc with Maria Servedio, in the Department of Biology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, studying the evolution of mating traits in monogamy. .
