Female mate choice and sexual selection in field crickets
I am interested in all areas of behaviour but especially that of mate choice and sexual selection. A particular area of interest is the role of multiple cues in mate selection. Currently I am working closely with Dr Thor Veen looking at hybrid zones and mating barriers using two populations of field cricket; Gryllus bimaculatus and Gryllus campestris.
I am studying part-time while working in the Biosciences department as a Research Technician. In this role I provide support to a number of research areas and work closely with all members of the department.
