Research Summary

My research addresses questions around the origin of sexual reproduction and its consequences for eukaryotic evolution.

I use theoretical and experimental approaches to study the evolution of female mate preferences for exaggerated male sexual traits used in courtship display. The work is motivated by theory on the handicap principle (female choice of mates with higher phenotypic or genotypic quality) and Fisher’s runaway process (female choice for attractive mates). These ideas are being tested with stalk-eyed flies, and this experimental work is in turn inspiring new theory about the signaling value of sexual traits, sperm competition and fertility, male choice of mating partners, female preference and meiotic drive.

UCL Partnerships and Innovation

Partnerships and Innovation

UCL is always expanding opportunities for knowledge exchange and research impact through a variety of mechanisms including collaborations with external partners, licensing of technology and by supporting academics in the development and commercialisation of their research.

UCL Life Science Bioscience Research


In our diverse bioscience portfolio our research addresses all of biology from protein interactions to cell function, organism development, genetics, population studies and the environment. Computational and modelling approaches are frequently conducted alongside experimental research programmes and much of our research crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries.
