Summary

I am a biologist studying the evolution of animal behaviour, using a combination of theory and simple experiments. I am currently at the University of Bristol in the UK, based in the Modelling Animal Decisions (MAD) group.

My current research centres on four main topics:

  • Decision making: How is behaviour constrained by the evolved mechanisms underlying it?
  • Mate choice: How do animals choose mates in an uncertain environment?
  • Aggression: How do animals resolve conflicts in an uncertain environment?
  • Sex ratios: What is the interplay between sexual selection and sex allocation?

Full details about my research can be found on my personal webpage.
