Research Interests

My research interests span evolutionary biology, behavioural ecology, and human behaviour. I’m particularly interested in sexual selection and even more focused on female competition and aggression. During my DPhil I worked with stalk-eyed flies and fruit flies to study female aggression and how it relates to female ornamentation, mating, male condition, and developmental environment. I am now working on understanding how mating leads to increased female aggression in fruit flies.
