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

My previous postdoctoral work has included research on 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, and in stress-related behaviour in Trinidadian guppies with Alastair Wilson at the University of Exeter. My PhD focused on age-related variation in sexual signalling in crickets, with  Luc Bussière at the University of Stirling. I previously taught alongside Luc on a 5-day PR Statistics course, ‘Advancing in statistical modelling using R’.

For more details on my current and previous work, please see my research page and publication list. I am also an associate editor for the journal Functional Ecology.
