Evolutionary Biology Group

Our research focuses on evolutionary conflicts and trade-offs associated with two inter-related areas: sexual selection and host-parasite coevolution. We use a variety of approaches, including genomics and experimental evolution, to understand arms races between hosts and parasites, between males and females, evolution of sexually selected ornaments and armaments, and consequences of these processes for adaptive potential of populations. We also study how these processes interact.
