Personal profile


I am an evolutionary biologist fascinated by behavioral ecology and sexual selection, and my research has mostly focused on insects and arachnids.  More recently, I developed a great interest on the evolution of alternative reproductive tactics, male dimorphism and the evolution of phenotypic plasticity. I am currently based at Macquarie University, but also hold an adjunct research fellow position at the University of Western Australia.
