Research

Research Overview

I am an evolutionary biologist interested in how environmental change alters animal behaviour and whether animal behaviour can aid or hinder adaptation to environmental change. My research integrates behavioural ecology, evolutionary biology, ecophysiology, and developmental biology. Some major themes in my work are reproductive behaviour (mating and parental care), social interactions, and phenotypic plasticity.
