ACADEMIC INTERESTS - My work is aimed at understanding how ecological conditions affect the evolution of physiological traits, which spans from studying macro-evolutionary patterns to individual genes. My main model organisms are parasitic wasps (Hymenoptera), because these insects evolved an atypical response to superfluous feeding by lacking the ability for lipid synthesis. I have further published on topics including sexual selection, life history evolution, stress physiology, as well as behavioural and chemical ecology.
