Our research lies at the exciting interface between behavior, evolution, and ecology. The central goal of our work is to deepen current understanding of how an organism's behavior, form, and physiology are shaped by ongoing evolutionary processes. We take an integrative approach by identifying relevant selective agents through fieldwork in natural communities, and further explore these processes using manipulative experiments in both the field and the lab. We use mainly insects as model systems, based on their ecological prominence and their astonishingly diverse lifestyles. Learn more >
