My research uses an empirical approach to examine a broad set of topics in behavioural and evolutionary ecology. I am particularly interested in understanding the role of sexual selection in the evolution of mating systems and strategies. I employ a variety of techniques and procedures in the field and in the laboratory to address research questions, including: molecular genotyping, immunological assay techniques, sound analysis, radiotelemetry, artificial selection experiments, breeding designs, phylogenetic comparative studies, geometric morphometrics, sperm viability assessment in addition to meta-analysis. Although most of my research focuses on insects and fishes, I am open to using other taxa as model systems.
