Senior Lecturer, University of Exeter

I am a biologist studying the evolution of animal behaviour, using a combination of theory and simple experiments.
I work in the Centre for Research in Animal Behaviour (CRAB) at the University of Exeter in the UK.

My current research centres on four main topics:
  • Decision making: How is behaviour constrained
    by the evolved mechanisms underlying it?
  • Mate choice: How do animals choose mates
    in an uncertain environment?
  • Aggression: How do animals resolve conflicts
    in an uncertain environment?
  • Sex ratios: What is the interplay between
    sexual selection and sex allocation?
