We are interested in understanding how selection
produces variation in form, behavior and reproductive
patterns. Using a variety of animals, we take advantage
of natural variation, convergent
evolution, artificial selection and sexual
selection to study the relationship
between genotype and complex phenotypes. We integrate data from genomes, transcriptomes and natural history to study the ways that selection navigates the restrictions imposed by genetic constraints and conflicts to create phenotypic diversity.
**** We are moving to
Vancouver!**** We are moving to the Department of
Zoology and Biodiversity Research Centre at the
University of British Columbia in late 2018. There are
multiple opportunities for PhD students and postdocs.
Please do get in touch if you are interested!
