Research Interests

I am a mathematician by training and apply my conceptualizing skills to answer relevant biological questions. I develop state-of-the-art models to investigate the evolutionary consequences of sexual selection, sex-specific demography, and trade-offs in life-history traits. Recently, I have broadened my portfolio to the evolutionary ecology of cancer, ontogenetic growth strategies, and the interaction between both. Currently, I'm investigating how out-group conflicts affect the evolution of life-history traits.
