I am interested in the relationships between development, heredity and evolution. This means that I take an ecological and developmental perspective when I ask, and hopefully answer, evolutionary questions. Evolutionary processes are often best understood when studied directly, and the research in my group often targets contemporary populations as they encounter and adapt (or fail to adapt) to novel biotic or abiotic environments. Our study systems include lizards, frogs, birds and, more recently, water fleas (Daphnia), which are good models to study how development can contribute to evolution in laboratory settings. We use a range of tools from genomics to comparative and meta-analytical methods. Several projects make use of mathematical modelling to predict or interpret phenotypic evolution. A developmental perspective on phenotypic evolution also raises several important conceptual issues. Clarifying these is a major focus of ongoing work and motivates empirical projects. Examples of recent research projects are listed to the right, please click if you want more information.
