Department of Biology and Evolution of Marine Organisms

I am an evolutionary marine biologist who has developed fish model systems to resolve fundamental questions in sexual selection under the broader field of physiology and behavioural ecology of reproduction. My research is primarily concerned with the evolution of male pre and post-copulatory reproductive traits, and with the mechanisms of female choice and its consequences on male signalling strategies. I am also currently involved in studies on the monitoring of reproduction and gamete quality in farmed species, aimed at developing a self-sustaining aquaculture for the conservation of natural marine resources.

My research is primarily concerned with marine reserves, survey methods, and trophic ecology – who eats who – and what effects these interactions have on community structure. I am especially interested in the functional role of predators in coastal marine systems and their impacts on the trophic structure of reef assemblages, and patterns in marine species diversity and functional diversity at varying scales.
