10649574_508769069257663_8543068028021470979_nI’m currently an Endeavour Research Fellow at the University if Macquarie working on colour variation and population genetics in the Hibiscus Harlequin Bug (Tectocoris diophthalmus).

I also work on variation in chemical protection in the wood tiger moth at the University of Jyväskylä.

I am interested in how intra- and inter-specific species interactions shape evolutionary processes. My particular areas of study are the evolution of mating systems and the role of automimicry in aposematic insect populations. To view my CV click here.

My PhD was in behavioural ecology and sexual selection at the University of St. Andrews. My thesis title was: The causes and consequences of reproductive interference in the Lygaeidae (hence the name of the website).
