Research Area: Behavioral ecology, sperm competition, sexual selection, quantitative genetics of mating behavior, ecotoxicology and conservation biology of arthropods

My research bridges ecology, evolution and behavior to explore how sexual selection shapes sperm competition, how genetic variation in mating behavior is maintained in natural populations, and the impact of urbanization on arthropods in riparian ecosystems.
