Evolutionary ecology

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

Research projects

  • Who is mimicking whom and why? The most diverse Australian mimicry complex - lycid beetles and their mimics
  • Convergent evolution of mechanisms producing iridescent and metallic colours in beetles. Co-supervised with Dr. Amanda Franklin.
