Postdoctoral fellow through ASU and University of Exeter (UK)
giraudeau.mathieu@gmail.com
My research concentrates on the interface between animal ecology, physiology, and evolution. My primary interests lie in examining the underlying physiological mechanisms mediating individual trade-offs, from early development and until adulthood.

My research interests range from life history changes caused by urbanization to aging in the wild, oxidative stress physiology, and evolution of coloration.

I study how house finch behavior varies across an urban gradient. I have studied stress responses, response to predators/novelty, problem-solving behavior, and juvenile responses.

I am interested in animal communication, color/signal evolution, and visual ecology. My current research focuses on understanding the evolution of hummingbird coloration and courtship displays.

Biology Ph.D. Student
Pierce.Hutton@asu.edu
I am interested in the co-evolution of sexual ornamentation and behavior in animals. I am also interested in how human alterations to the environment (especially urban light pollution) alter physiological and behavioral phenotypes of animals.

Biology Ph.D. Student

I am interested in proximate and ultimate mechanisms of sexually selected ornaments as well as how animals regulate the trade-off between ornament production and maintenance (i.e. survival and fitness), especially in carotenoid-colored birds like the house finch.
