I study the genetic conflict between the sexes, intra-locus sexual conflict, in the seed beetle  Callosobruchus maculatus. Intra-locus sexual conflict occurs when alternative alleles at particular loci are favored oppositely by the sexes. We identify sexually antagonistic genetic variation using quantitative genetic approaches, and gain further insight by investigating the underlying proximate bases of genetic variation in sex-specific fitness, e.g. metabolic rate, sexual selection, longevity...

I am currently doing my PhD with Göran Arnqvist in the Animal Ecology unit of the Ecology and Genetics department at the Evolutionary Biology Center, Uppsala University.  I did my masters from 2009-2012 with Michal Polak in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Cincinnati, and I also did my undergraduate degree in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Cincinnati from 2004-2009 (joining Mike's lab as an undergraduate researcher in 2007).
