My main interest is in the field of evolutionary genetics, which I have been studying using theoretical approaches. My current projects deal with the evolution of genetic systems: the evolution of sexual versus asexual reproduction, the evolution of mating systems (selfing versus outcrossing) and the evolution of life cycles. I am also interested in the evolution of social interactions, evolution in spatially structured populations and evolutionary transitions to higher levels of organisation.
