Research Interests
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.
