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