My research aims to understand ecological patterns in mammals, specifically what the ecological and evolutionary consequences are of being a certain size, adopting a foraging or locomotory strategy etc.  I’m interested in understanding the trade-offs between physiology, life history and environment balanced against phylogeny and past history.
