Alex Trillo

I am a behavioral ecologist and a field biologist. My primary aims as a teacher and scholar are to give students the necessary tools to become integrative biologists, critical thinkers, and global community members – and to inspire in them a deeper appreciation of the natural world. My current research interests include the effects of eavesdropper predators and parasites on the evolution of signals and signaling behavior and the effects of that multiple mating by females (polyandry) has on sexual trait evolution in beetles.
