Abraham Kuijper
Research Fellow


I am an early career research fellow funded by the Leverhulme Trust, working on the evolution of extended inheritance. Currently I am using a range of theoretical techniques (evolutionary game theory, quantitative genetics, individual-based simulations) to study how parental effects, heritable epimutations and other transgenerational effects alter the evolutionary process. Next to studying extended inheritance, I am also interested in the evolution of sexually selected traits, sex-determining mechanisms and social behavior.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Theoretical Biology
  • Behavioral Ecology
  • Nongenetic inheritance

Office hours:

I am located at the Tremough Innovation Centre (TIC), office G10a, which requires visitor registration. So if you want to meet, best to drop me a line.
