I am an SNF Ambizione fellow studying the evolutionary genetics of sexual selection and sexual conflict. Much of my work involves generating and testing predictions of evolutionary theory using experimental evolution with the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster and a combination of phenotypic and genomic approaches. A major aim is to better understand the ways sexual selection constrains and facilitates adaptation, in particular with respect to the evolution of differences between the sexes.
