About us

Our lab focuses on integrating behaviour, genetics and physiology using molecular tools and field biology to study as complete scenarios of trait evolution (such as colour signals) as we believe possible. We make sure to identify the appropriate model system necessary for a seamless project outline taking us from exciting field projects, where ongoing selection can be studied in free-ranging animals, to explicit deciphering of molecular and biochemical mechanisms in the laboratory. In most cases, this has led us to using reptiles and amphibians as model systems.
