Senior Research Fellow, University of Bristol

I am a biologist studying the evolution of animal behaviour, using a combination of theory and simple experiments.
I am currently at the University of Bristol in the UK, based in the Modelling Animal Decisions (MAD) group.

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?
