I am a Professor and Canada Research Chair in Integrative Behavioural Ecology at the University of Toronto. My research examines how reciprocal effects of ecological and social factors influence reproductive tactics, life history decisions, physiological performance, sexual selection, and diversification. Work in my group leverages the diverse mating systems and ecologies of spiders, particularly the 'widow' spiders (Latrodectus species) to test theory in these areas in the field and laboratory.
