Dr. Thomas White

I'm an evolutionary biologist with a particular interest in sensory ecology and communication. I'm working to understand how animals interact with the world around them, and I use the interactions between sensory systems, signals, and environments to test and refine evolutionary theory. I mostly work with invertebrates for their tractability in addressing questions of evolution and behaviour, and for the unique opportunities for discovery offered by non-model organisms. In 2018 I joined the wonderful School of Life and Environmental Sciences at The University of Sydney as a lecturer and Academic Fellow.
