PhD - Biology
Main supervisor: Shinichi Nakagawa
Endeavour Postgraduate Scholarship supervisor: Andrew Hendry
During my PhD I (1) conducted a meta-analysis and experiments to test the effects of developmental temperature on phenotypic mean and variance in fishes; (2) quantified predictability of zebrafish behaviour and tested whether individual variation in physiology was linked to individual variation in behavioural and life-history traits; (3) researched reporting practices of meta-analyses in ecology and evolution, with the aim of improving reporting quality.

Thesis: Size Matters: Male and Female Investment in Reproduction
During my honours year I discovered the joys and challenges of research during two experimental projects with mosquitofish (see publications 3 and 4). One project investigated how sperm replenishment is influenced by the size and condition of males, and the other teased apart the effects of maternal age and maternal size on offspring size.
