My research focuses on mechanisms and evolutionary consequences of reproductive competition and sexual selection, particularly in mammals. I have broad interests in the fields of behavioural and evolutionary ecology relating to reproductive strategies, life history evolution and social behaviour. Multidisciplinary collaborations apply molecular and proteomics techniques to address evolutionary questions within these areas. I also collaborate with project partners on applied conservation problems.
