“Evolutionary strategies in animals, using fishes as model systems”.

I am an evolutionary ecologist interested in

¤ Behavioural strategies in marine and freshwater fishes.

¤ Reproductive tactics and sexual selection

¤ Animal coloration and colour signals.

¤ Chromatophores and carotenoids.


Currently, I am a lecturer in Evolutionary Ecology at the Linnaeus University in Sweden.

I am also partaking in a research project together with Prof. John Endler at Deakin University, Australia. There, I investigate the roles of evolutionary exaggeration and innovation in the carotenoid-based colour patterns of male guppies (Poecilia reticulata).
