I am a lecturer in Evolutionary Ecology and course coordinator for Evolutionary Biology and Genetics (1Bi004), Behavioural Ecology (1Bi003)and Ethology (2Bi004).

I am interested in behavioural strategies in animals, with fishes as model organisms. My research projects concern, for example:
-Why do certain animal form schools/flocks?
-How do parasites affect the beahviour of their hosts?
-How can animals trust each other when communicating?
-Which roles do carotenoids and other pigments have in animal color signals?
-How does sexual selection drive the evolution of animal coloration?
-What determines animal strategies for aggression?
-Which strategies do animals use when choosing sexual partners?
-Which conflicts arise when the male, the female or both care for the offspring?
