My main interest is adaptation, and especially the evolution of social behaviours, such as cooperation, altruism, spite, mutualism, and how these can influence major evolutionary transitions. I use a mixture of techniques including theory, experiment and across species comparative studies. My empirical work has utilised a range of organisms, from microbes to vertebrates.
