Education:

PostDoctoral Fellow, Department of Integrative Biology, University of California, Berkeley, 1992-1998

Ph.D., Department of Zoology, University of Toronto, 1993
Thesis: The evolution of parental investment in fishes

M.Sc., Department of Biological Sciences, Simon Fraser University, 1986
Thesis: Parental investment theory: tests in bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus: Centrarchidae).

B.Sc., Zoology, 1st class, University of British Columbia, 1983

Research Interests:

I am interested in evolutionary ecology, particularly the evolution of parental investment allocation behaviour and the origin and maintenance of parental care states in animals. My research involves theoretical modelling of parental investment using life-history and game theory, and manipulative experiments in both the field and laboratory predominantly using sunfish and cichlids. My most recent research concerns the evolution of egg size, combining a parental investment perspective with biomechanics, ecomorphology and ecophysiology in the wild. In addition, I have been involved in theoretical research on the evolution of strain-structure in parasite populations.
