Research area

The variety of life histories displayed by the world’s animals and plants has fascinated scientists for centuries. Some organisms have short lives, while others have long lives. Some reproduce abundantly, while others produce fewer offspring. Some can enter dormancy of some kind, while others can not. Some are caring parents, or are highly social, while others are not.

My research area is centred on understanding the patterns, causes, and consequences of this variation across the tree of life and in different environments.
