I'm an evolutionary ecologist interested in how and why individual phenotypes vary in the wild. I am particularly interested in understanding the causes and consequences of variation in immunity and the ageing process in natural systems. The work I do is grounded in ecology and evolutionary genetics but takes in a wide range of other disciplines. I've always found myself coming back to Am Nat for both its inspiring fundamental works in ecology and evolution and for research that inject different perspective and disciplines into those fields.
