"Somewhere between nature and nurture"


Our research focusses on life-history evolution in natural and model systems. We use field-based experiments and lab-based microcosm studies to try and understand how the interaction between the environment and individual and population level processes shape the evolution and diversity of life-history strategies within natural populations.

Current projects utilise Daphnia, Mnais damselflies and venus flytraps.

Now recruiting for 2020 PhD projects. Contact me if you want to discuss any of the advertised projects.
