Here, I am investigating associations between environment, behaviour, physiology and life-history strategies in annual and non-annual killifish (Aplocheilidae).
Behavioural and morphological variation in Neotropical fishes
I looked into how behavioural and phenotypic variation is generated and maintained in Neotropical cichlids. Broadly, I found significant variation in the phenotypic response of cichlid individuals when introduced to a novel environment, clear behavioural and morphological variation between distinct colour morphs, and significant sex differences in the level and timing of parental investment.
My thesis is available open access here.
I completed my undergraduate (BSc Hons) at Monash University. For my Honours thesis I investigated the impact that introduced salmonids have on patterns of preferred habitat selection in native galaxiids. I was supervised by Bob Wong and Ross Thompson.
