My research centres on the evolutionary ecology of life history transitions, secondary sexual traits and mating systems. My approach includes field and laboratory experiments directed toward testing current theory, and the development of new theory. Ongoing research includes (1) the micro and macro-evolutionary dynamics of sexual conflict, (2) senescence and reproductive determinism, (3) the role and consequences of condition-dependence in behaviour and development, (4) the evolution of reaction norms for life history transitions.
