Dr. Tim Connallon – is my primary supervisor here at Monash. Tim is a population geneticist with a particular interest in sexually antagonistic selection. We are currently working on several theoretical projects, ranging from models of sexually antagonistic selection over reproductive timing in external fertilizers, to the consequences of sex-specific selection for the evolution of the selfing rate in hermaphrodites.
Dr. Dustin Marshall – is my co-supervisor at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Dustin studies the evolutionary causes and consequences of variation in reproductive traits for marine invertebrates, along with a variety of other broadly ecological questions. Check out what Dustin is up to at the MEEG group website.
Dr. Lawrence Harder – Lawrence was my unofficial co-supervisor at the University of Calgary, and continues to be a bit of a sage for me in my academic development. He is a world renowned floral evolutionary ecologist, and a brilliant and deep thinker. We are currently collaborating on a project involving phenological aspects of pollinator mediated competition and gender dynamics in hermaphroditic flowering plants.
Dr. Jeremy Fox – was my M.Sc. supervisor at the University of Calgary. He’s a community ecologist with a bent towards population dynamics. Jeremy also maintains an interesting blog. Check out Jeremy’s stream of consciousness here.
Dr. Tadashi Fukami – Tad and I go back to the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where I did my B.Sc. in Marine Biology. Tad supervised my undergraduate research project, which eventually metamorphosed into an article published in The American Naturalist. Tad has since moved on to an illustrious position at Stanford university.
