Research Interest

My main research interests include post-copulatory sexual selection and inter-sexual conflict in arthropods. I am particularly interested in strategies used by male orthopterans (crickets, bushcrickets and relatives) to secure copulations, to prolong the duration of copulation and ejaculate transfer, to protect the ejaculate within the female and to manipulate the reproductive behaviour of the female, cryptic female choice and polyandry.
