Post Doctoral Researcher
Generally interested in the evolution and function of behaviour, and in the role that behaviour plays as a spearhead of evolutionary change. Currently, our main line of research is on biotic and abiotic factors modulating the intensity and form of sexual selection and sexual conflict, and its consequences in terms of eco-evolutionary feedback and population viability.
