Research

My research interests lie in evolutionary biology and primarily aim to understand how an organism copes with a rapid change in environment. To quantify this I have measured behaviour, microhabitat, performance, and morphology of animals in environments that differ in temperature, structure, and community. Within evolutionary biology, my research falls into the categories below. My research currently focuses on qunatitative genetics, although previously I have looked at behavioural ecology, conservation biology, and island biology. My study systems are usually ectotherms, and I mainly focus on a thermal environmental change.
