How individuals schedule their investment in growth, reproduction and survival (i.e. their life-history strategies) varies enormously within and between species. I wish to improve our understanding of the factors shaping the evolution of this diversity (e.g. sexual selection, kin selection), and the proximate constraints on life-history evolution (e.g. nutrition).

I usually work in the lab using insect models but am also involved in the COMPADRE and COMADRE databases, which collate demographic data for thousands of species in the form of matrix population models.
