Evolutionary Biology and Speciation


His major research field is the evolutionary genetics of behaviours which influence sexual isolation, and other approaches to the study of speciation. Current research projects involve analyses of the quantitative and molecular genetics of song and pheromones of various species of Drosophila. Other projects include population and phylogenetic analyses of Mexican fish and crickets.


Evolutionary Biology and Speciation

His research interests concerns the evolutionary genetics of sexual isolation in insect species, and other approaches to the study of speciation. Research projects involve analyses of the inheritance and geographic variation of courtship signals and preferences of Drosophila and crickets. Also, comparative genomic analyses of various species.
