What we do
We are a research lab based in the wonderful 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.
