Prospective Students

I am currently accepting MSc and PhD students. Interested applicants should send a CV, an unofficial transcript along with a cover letter summarizing their research interests, academic background, and skills. Please check my lab website for additional details.

Research

My research centres on the evolutionary ecology of life history transitions, secondary sexual traits and mating systems. My approach includes field and laboratory experiments directed toward testing current theory, and the development of new theory. Ongoing research includes (1) the micro and macro-evolutionary dynamics of sexual conflict, (2) senescence and reproductive determinism, (3) the role and consequences of condition-dependence in behaviour and development, (4) the evolution of reaction norms for life history transitions.
