Behavioural and genomic studies of sexual selection and reproductive isolation in wild field crickets
Previously I have looked into differential sperm allocation by fowl, Gallus gallus, and copulation failure in flour beetles, Tribolium castaneum. I am currently employing a combination of behavioural studies, bioinformatics and molecular techniques to investigate the evolution of reproductive isolation and the genetic basis of behaviour in two closely related species of field cricket; Gryllus campestris and Gryllus bimaculatus.
