Research Interests

My research focus is the study of evolutionary causes and consequences of sex differences. I am interested in understanding 1) why sexual conflict remains pervasive in spite of the existance of mechanisms to resolve it and 2) what the consequences of such long-standing conflict are, particularly in terms of biomedical implications. I am using a combination of theroy and bioinformatic data analyses to answer these questions.
