We are a research lab residing on Gadigal land, part of the Eora nation, and we pay our respects to past, present, and emerging Elders of the Gadigal community. We acknowledge their enduring culture as among the oldest in human history, and honour their abiding custodianship of the natural world which sustains us and inspires our work.

What we do
As members of School of Life and Environmental Sciences at The University of Sydney, we spend our time using lab and field experiments, modelling, and meta-analysis to answer questions of adaptive evolution and behaviour. In particular we are interested in how organisms gather and exchange information in order to solve life's daily challenges, and the ecological and evolutionary consequences of these processes. Non-model invertebrates have proven a particular source of inspiration, with butterflies, flies, and spiders being mainstays in the lab, though we gladly use any system appropriate for the questions at hand. Take a look at some of our ongoing projects and recent publications to see what we're currently up to, and feel free to get in touch! We always welcome new students, project ideas, and collaborations.
