Evolutionary Biology and Speciation

 

His research interests concerns the evolutionary genetics of behaviours which influence sexual isolation in insect species, and other approaches to the study of speciation. Research projects involve analyses of the inheritance and geographic variation of courtship signals and preferences of Drosophila and crickets. Also, quantitative trait loci analysis of interspecific differences in song and pheromones of Drosophila, and phylogeographic analysis of insects and fish.
