I use population and evolutionary genetics to answer questions about animal biology, particularly in large mammals. Most of my work has been on large (mainlyAfrican) mammals. My research addresses a range of topics in these species, including the historical drivers of population dynamics, how variation emerges and is retained, speciation, adaptive evolution and the relationship between phenotypic and genomic variation. I am also interested in topics of a more immediate interest in species conservation such as landscape genetics, the effect of habitat fragmentation, population connectivity etc.
MY LATEST RESEARCH
Both of my senior authorship papers in 2018 made the cover, in Nature Ecology & Evolution and Current Biology, respectively! Check them out.
