Research interests

My research focuses on the evolutionary biology and ecology of natural populations. I use a combination of ecological and molecular approaches to address fundamental questions in the fields of genetic adaptation, mating systems evolution, population connectivity and sexual selection.

My research group works on a range of marine and terrestrial organisms, chosen because they represent the best model systems in which to test fundamental questions in ecological and evolutionary biology. Some of the main research topics and species we work on include:

Adaptation of native and invasive species – (Sea Anemones, European Starlings, Northern Pacific Sea Star)
Connectivity and dispersal – (Seagrass, Freshwater crayfish, Marine Fish, Marine Invertebrates)
Mating system evolution (e.g. outcrossing, selfing, clonal reproduction) – Corals, Sea Anemones, Seagrasses, Sea Stars
Sexual selection, sperm competition and cryptic female choice – Bivalves, Sea Stars, Sea Urchins, Amphibians.
