I am interested in behavioural ecology and evolutionary biology. Specifically, I am interested in whether the observed behaviour of organisms can be understood as the product of the action of natural selection.
One major current interest is in evolutionary game theory, particulary negotiation strategies and the effects of variation in traits. Another mjor interest is in life history theory, particulary how trade offs are mediated by physiological state.
