Sofia studies animal communication and the evolutionary processes underlying mate choice and social interactions. She recently completed her PhD with Prof Mike Ryan at UT Austin, looking at the interaction between acoustic signalling and chytrid infection in Tungara frogs. As a postdoc in the Jordan lab, she is studying how seismic communication is used by social spiders to coordinate group movements, and how the structure and connectivity of webs influence signal transmission.
