Research Interests -

  • Research in our laboratory focuses on evolutionary and behavioral genetics. We use both molecular and quantitative genetic approaches to address the evolution of complex traits, especially traits expressed in and influencing social interactions. We also develop theoretical quantitative genetic models of the evolution of traits expressed during interactions. Finally, we are also interested in the genetics, development and evolution of differences between the sexes (including sexual dimorphism, sexual signaling and parental care) and in the genetic basis and consequences of sexual selection.
