I am interested in evolutionary interactions at various levels, from within loci to between coevolving species. In the past, I have worked on topics including social evolution, mutation load, sexual selection, the evolution of sex & recombination, and host-parasite coevolution. A reoccurring theme in this research is how genetic systems (within individuals, within social groups, between species) affect evolution. See my homepage for more details.
