Ecology and Evolution of Sex Determining Mechanisms in Agamid Lizards
I just started my Ph.D. at the University of Canberra. I’m working in the Institute for Applied Ecology with Dr. Stephen Sarre and Dr. Arthur Georges. My project will complement work already conducted in lab settings. I will be investigating the ecological causes and consequences of transitions between genetic sex determination and temperature-sex determination. Specifically, I will be comparing spatial ecology, thermoregulation, and energetics among sex reversed females (ZZf), non-sex reversed females (ZWf), and males (ZZm).
