Professor Tom Tregenza
Professor of Evolutionary Ecology
My interests lie in understanding how evolution shapes the biodiversity and behaviour of animals. I use insects and other model systems to understand questions about how species form and the evolutionary consequences of sexual reproduction. I am leader of the Evolution research group.
