Professor of Biodiversity
Tutorial Fellow, Wadham College
I study the evolutionary and ecological processes generating and sustaining biodiversity and the response of biodiversity to global change. For more information, visit my group website.

Associate Editor: Evolution and Journal of Animal Ecology
Funding: NERC, Royal Society, John Fell Fund and EPSRC
Teaching: Convene and lecture on the third year course Evolutionary Ecology of Animals, and contribute additional lectures to courses on Sensory Ecology, Evolution and Ecology of Sex, and Quantitative Methods.
