Research Interests

I am interested in the evolutionary ecology of sexual behaviour in wild birds. Most of my work focuses on the mechanisms that explain the variation of sexual behaviour and their meaning within an evolutionary context both in males and females. I use red grouse (Lagopus lagopus scoticus) and common kestrels (Falco tinnunculus) as model species which allow me to use a combination of experimental work integrating behavioural, physiological and molecular tools.
