Key research
My research focuses primarily on sexual selection and evolution in natural and laboratory populations of freshwater fishes and marine invertebrates, but I also continue to expand my research foci to include new model systems (e.g. amphibians, mammals, elasmobranchs) and research directions. Current research projects are funded primarily through two ARC grants focusing on the genetic and environmental basis for linking pre- and postcopulatory episodes of sexual selection, inbreeding, the evolution of sperm-egg interactions in broadcast spawning invertebrates, and behavioural ecology in guppies.
Key research interests:
Sexual Selection
Sperm Competition
Evolutionary and Ecological Genetics
