Bio/Research

I received my BSc in Honours Ecology and Evolution in 1999, from the University of Western Ontario, my MSc in Zoology in 2001 from the University of Guelph, and my PhD in Biology in 2005 from Queen’s University.

Prior to joining Laurier, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology at the University of California Santa Barbara (2005-2009), and in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Toronto (2009-2010).

Sexual selection is a powerful evolutionary process arising when individuals differ in their reproductive output due to their ability to secure mates. Some of these differences may be due to variation in the “display” traits of members of one sex (typically males) used to attract members of the opposite sex (typically females). Historically, most studies of mate choice have focuses on variation those male traits subject to selection by females and have overlooked the important role of variation in female mate preferences. My lab investigates the sources of female preference variation and its effects on patterns of evolutionary change.
