Research interests

Evolutionary ecology

  • Behavioural and sensory ecology
  • Animal coloration: mechanism, function and evolution
  • Macro-ecological patterns of colour diversity

Research projects

  • Light manipulation by structures and pigments in beetles or lizards - interdisciplinary research with applications for bioinpsired materials.
  • How does colour affect heat gain? Field-based experiments on diverse beetle species.
  • Perception of dynamic colour signals. Co-supervised with Dr Amanda Franklin.
  • Are iridescent colours more likely to be sexual signals in birds? Co-supervised with Dr. Iliana Medina.
