  • This delegate is presenting an abstract at this event.
My research interests lie in the behavioural ecology and conservation biology of social fishes. More specifically, I use social fishes from both marine and freshwater environments as model species to test key hypotheses related to the evolution of conflict, cooperation, group-living and mating systems. The techniques I use range from observational and experimental approaches in the field to physiological assessments of underlying proximate mechanisms in the laboratory. I am also interested in understanding the impacts of abiotic stressors on the behaviour of social fishes and how this impacts higher levels of their social organisation. Therefore, my research draws on a wide variety of techniques to address both pure and applied questions in behavioural ecology.
