Keywords: behavioral ecology, comparative cognition, animal behavior, behavioral flexibility, social learning I investigate how behavioral flexibility relates to rapid geographic range expansions in grackles (a bird associated with human-modified environments) and other species (www.CorinaLogan.com). I co-founded ManyIndividuals (https://github.com/ManyIndividuals/ManyIndividuals) - a global network of researchers with field sites investigating hypotheses that involve generalizing across many individuals. We conduct the same tests in the same way across species to determine whether the results of particular experiments are generalizable beyond that population or species. I write my articles using rmarkdown (reproducible manuscripts where the text and R code live together), post them publicly at GitHub (https://github.com/corinalogan/grackles), and get them pre- and post-study peer reviewed at PCI. If they end up going to a journal after that, it has to be ethical! (See my list here: http://corinalogan.com/journals.html) I am a Senior Researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, and I co-lead the #BulliedIntoBadScience campaign where early career researchers are working to change academic culture to adopt open research practices to improve research rigor (www.BulliedIntoBadScience.org). Follow along as I learn about grackles, implicit biases, and verifiable research on Twitter (@LoganCorina, https://twitter.com/LoganCorina).
