Vale is a Research Fellow at CONICET and Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales Bernardino Rivadavia, Argentina. Her research centers on understanding evolutionary diversification of life-history strategies in birds. She is interested in life-history variation across levels of organization that bridge different temporal and spatial scales. The questions she asks explore the interface between ecology, behavior, morphology and evolution of mating systems and breeding biology. At present, she is studying variation in behavioral, morphological, and genetic traits associated with mate choice in Tachycineta swallows.
