Current Research

I am interested in the cause and consequences of individual trait (co)variation, and how trait (co)variation within and among phenotypic categories (behavioural, morphological, and physiological) affects fitness. I approach these questions from an ecological and evolutionary perspective by measuring multiple traits on the same individual and relating these to reproductive success and differences between selective environments (such as heterospecific competitors).
