Functional Ecology & Evolution
I am a postdoctoral researcher interested in the evolutionary ecology and physiology of organisms, particularly the responses of functional traits to environmental changes and challenges.
This has been the overarching theme to my research to date, which has included work on the physiological and behavioural consequences of viral infection in fruit flies, trait responses to selection on dispersal in invasive beetles, evolution of phenotypic plasticity of plants, and systematic reviews and meta-analyses on selection, metabolic rate, and thermal tolerance, among other side projects.
I am now working with Professors Adrienne Nicotra and Loeske Kruuk in the Research School of Biology at The Australian National University as a postdoc investigating phenotypic plasticity and evolution of multiple traits in response to a changing climate in an alpine bluebell species.
