Current Research

I am interested in evolutionary genetics and looking at the genetic basis of wing colour polymorphisms in Lepidoptera and the interplay between aposematic signalling and the evolution of wing patterns. Namely, looking at the difference in colouration in Colias eurytheme and Colias philodice as well as looking at the role of mimicry and aposematism in the colour and UV patterns of Delias butterflies.
