Research interests

My research concerns the interface between evolution and ecology, particularly in reptiles (snakes and lizards). In recent years, my work increasingly has shifted to focus on major issues in conservation - especially the biology, impact and control of invasive species such as the cane toad. I have worked extensively on evolutionary transitions in life-history traits and on sexually-selected traits. I am also interested in the interplay between different aspects of organismal biology, and how we can translate the results of 'academic' research into effective conservation.
