Key Research Interests

The focus of my research is the evolutionary ecology of sexually dimorphic traits and my special interest is to combine experimental and theoretical approaches to understand the evolution and maintenance of such traits. Specific research interests include the evolution of female choice, effects of fluctuating selection and acoustic communication.
