Project Overview

Genetics and Epigenetics of Parental Care. This project interrogates the mechanistic basis and evolutionary genetics of parental behaviour and, more generally, social behaviour. We use molecular genetics and genomics to interrogate the molecular substrates of parental care of the burying beetle Nicrophorus vespilloides. My research group also has several collaborations. Research Areas. Social behaviour, Genetics, Epigenetics, Social Neuroscience.
