Research Interests:

We aim to understand what motivates small bodied mammals in their decisions about where to live, when to be active and inactive, and how to maintain a balance between energy intake and expenditure. We use insect-eating bats and small ground-living mammals as model organisms and a range of lab and field techniques including bio-logging to quantify physiology and behavior in free-ranging animals, and open-flow respirometry to quantify metabolism in the laboratory.  We are also conducting research to address two crises for the conservation of North American bats, mortality of migratory bats at industrial-scale wind turbines and the emerging infectious disease white-nose syndrome.

I am always interested in hearing from prospective graduate students and post-docs. Please check out http://www.willisbatlab.org for more information.
