Profile

I am an evolutionary biologist with broad interests, but I am primarily interested in sexual selection and sexual conflict. I have worked on sperm competition, developmental instability, inbreeding, metabolism, reproduction, signalling, the genetics of sexual selection, immunity and inter- and intra-locus sexual conflict. I am a member of the Evolution research group and am based in Cornwall.
