I am an evolutionary biologist fascinated by behavioural ecology and sexual selection, and my research has mostly focused on insects and arachnids. I also have a great interest on the evolution of alternative reproductive tactics, male dimorphism and the evolution of phenotypic plasticity. I am a lecturer at Flinders University, and also hold an adjunct research fellow position at the University of Western Australia, where I did my PhD and held an ARC DECRA position until 2017.
