Personal profile


As a behavioral ecologist I am generally interested in the evolutionary processes related to reproduction. My main interest currently is how the distribution of resources affects spatial and temporal variation in sexual selection. In addition my lab works on questions on mating system evolution, ecological effects on sexual selection and mate choice evolution.


Most of my work uses fish as model systems but I have also been working on birds, for example common eiders. I also to some extent use theoretical approaches in my research. In my empirical research I mostly use experiments as they are often better suited for the kind of questions I am interested in. The majority of experiments are done in the lab but lately field experiment have become more common. Occasionally I regret that I don't collect more non-experimental data.
