I am a Lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis. I received my Ph.D. from Texas A&M University, where I studied sexual selection and genomics in the Jones lab. I received my BA in Biology, with a concentration in Environmental Science, from Colby College in Waterville, Maine, after attending high school at the American School of Warsaw in Warsaw, Poland.
My lab works on understanding the evolution of complex, multivariate traits (such as mating display traits), primarily through an integrative use of behaviour, genetics, and simulation modeling. Check out my lab website for more information, including an updated list of publications and lab members.
