Summary

My research addresses how genetic and environmental variation is maintained in sexually selected traits. My students and I use an animal behavior approach that incorporates tools from nutritional ecology, ecological physiology, and quantitative genetics. Our laboratory-based empirical research quantifies the phenotypic and genetically based variation in condition, life-history traits, and sexually selected traits and determines how this variation is influenced by diet and physiology.
