Research interests

I am an evolutionary biologist who has conducted research in behavioral ecology, conservation biology, evolutionary theory and genetics. I have research interests that cover a diverse range of topics including female ornamentation, conservation, evolutionary stable strategies, mutation loads, the evolution of colour signals, nuptial gift evolution, developmental integration and selection analysis. I have also developed microsatellites and used them to assess population genetic parameters.
