I am an evolutionary biologist with interests in the causes and consequences of variation in — and covariation among — flexible traits, particularly animal behaviour. I currently work at the University of Exeter, although I am based in Cambridge.

My postdoctoral research has taken in individual and genetic variation in cooperative behaviour in Damaraland mole-rats and Kalahari meerkats with Tim Clutton-Brock’s Large Animal Research Group at the University of Cambridge, stress-related behaviour in Trinidadian guppies with Alastair Wilson at the University of Exeter, plus lots of exciting collaborations on a range of species. My PhD focused on age-related variation in sexual signalling in crickets, with  Luc Bussière at the University of Stirling. I also taught alongside Luc on a 5-day PR Statistics course, ‘Advancing in statistical modelling using R’.
