My research interests are diverse, but are broadly centred on the ecology and evolution of reptiles. I am particularly interested in understanding the proximate and ultimate causes of phenotypic variation in morphology and life history traits, and how these influence the day-to-day lives of organisms. I am also passionate about using best science to inform decisions about wildlife resource management, and how this can be maximised to benefit people’s livelihoods and species conservation.
