We are broadly interested in addressing key questions in evolution and behavioural ecology. We use multi-disciplinary approaches to understand how genetics affects phenotypic traits and behaviours. Our research topics include individual recognition, mate choice, animal behaviour, animal coloration, host-pathogen co-evolution, gene family evolution, genotype-phenotype association, phylogenomics, and conservation genomics. We study both natural and captive non-model organisms. Our research combines experiments in the field and laboratory. Our work incorporates techniques from molecular biology, population & comparative genomics, bioinformatics, computer science, field study, and animal experiment.
