Biography

I am an evolutionary ecologist interested in how phylogeny, natural selection and sexual selection contribute to the evolution of behavioural diversity. I combine large-scale phylogenetic comparative analysis across species and targeted experimental study within species to investigate macro- and microevolutionary processes shaping behaviour and other sexually-selected traits. From more details, see www.eerc.unsw.edu.au/ord
