I am interested in understanding animal behaviour from both functional and causal perspectives. I work extensively on the evolution of primary reproductive traits (sperm and genitalia) and their role in reproductive isolation – crossing the bridge between micro and macro-evolution. However, at heart I am a card-carrying Darwinian who is interested in all aspects of animal behaviour and evolution and have worked with fish, birds, mammals and insects.
