Hello! I’m Ellie Diamant, currently a Ph.D. student in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UCLA in the Yeh Lab. Broadly, I’m interested in avian behavior and sexual selection as a lens to understand avian behavioral ecology and evolutionary responses to ecological change. I’m interested in the effect of anthropogenic change on animal behavior through basic science questions. For my Ph.D. thesis, I am exploring an urban colonization success story – the Dark-eyed Junco – and understanding behavioral, morphological, and genomic adaptation across Southern Californian urban cities.
