Biography
I received my PhD from Nottingham University in 1986 and held a series of postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Liverpool until 1995 when I moved to UWA. I received an ARC Federation Fellowship in 2004 and was elected to the Australian Academy in 2009. My interests are in the study of evolution, and in particular how selection has shaped the reproductive behaviour and morphology of animals. Much of my research has used insects as model systems for studying evolution but I have also extended my work to other animal groups, including fishes, frogs and humans. I am Editor-in-Chief of the journal Behavioral Ecology, Editor of Advances in the Study of Behavior, and on the editorial boards of Journal of Ethology.
