I am interested in the information encoded in multi-modal signals in animals. I am also interested in the evolution of female ornamentation and behavior, especially in sexually dichromatic birds.

I study the coevolution of sensory systems and sexually selected traits, and the influence of this relationship on patterns of gene flow. I also use creative storytelling and visual artworks as methods of scientific communication and education.  https://www.jacksondanny.com/
