About me

I am an evolutionary ecologist interested three principal research themes.

Theme 1. Epidemiological and coevolutionary implications of host-parasite interactions.

Theme 2. The effects of ionising radiation on the evolutionary ecology of populations, with specific focus on Chernobyl Daphnia.

Theme 3. The paradox of sex, i.e., why sex is the dominant mode of reproduction (as opposed to asexual reproduction), when it is so costly.
