I am a broadly trained multidisciplinary biologist interested on how evolution has shaped phenotypic and life-history traits in mammals. My research is mainly empirical, drawing from theory in the fields of Ecology, Behaviour, Physiology, and Genetics to identify the drivers and consequences of these sources of variation on individuals. It also draws from the field of evolutionary demography to understand the population-level consequences and evolutionary outcomes of such variation.
I set up and run The Mouse Project at Silwood Park, Imperial College London, one of Silwood Park long-term field studies. The study began in 2008 and uses a high-resolution spatially-explicit approach to capture the biotic and abiotic drivers of individual variation and population dynamics.
I am currently based at the Department of Life Sciences of the University of Alcala, Madrid. I am also an Honorary Lecturer at Imperial College London, and a Senior Research Associate at Oxford's Zoology Department. I have been a Biology Lecturer at St. Hilda's College and a Departmental Lecturer at the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford.
