My primary interests are in natural and sexual selection,
in particular how sexual selection can influence the evolution
of behavior. Ultimately I am interested in mating behavior
and the costs and benefits associated with courtship and reproduction.
Currently I am working the significance of spontaneous male
death in the dark fishing spider, Dolomedes tenebrosus.
