    Biography

    Personal Statement

    I am an evolutionary biologist investigating the feedback between genes, individual behaviour, and population level effects. I am particularly interested in sex chromosome meiotic drive, which I study in a variety of species of fruit fly, and in the interplay between selfish genes, the environment, and fertility.
