ResearchWe are interested in the evolutionary biology of a wide range of phenomena involving parasitism and sex. Our research is primarily theoretical, i.e. we construct mathematical models or run computer simulations to scrutinize evolutionary hypotheses. We also do experiments in bacteria and fieldwork with arthropods. To find out more about our research, click on the following links:
