Hi there!

I'm an evolutionary ecologist in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences at The University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia. I lead The Evolutionary and Sensory Ecology Lab, where we use lab and field experiments, modelling, and meta-analysis to answer questions of adaptive evolution and behaviour.
