My research, and that of my associates, is concerned with understanding developmental physiology, particularly the regulatory processes in postembryonic development of insects. We are also interested in the evolution of those processes, and the insights this can give us into the mechanisms by which genes, environment and physiology affect the development and evolution of complex traits. We explore these problems in four specific (and interconnected) areas of investigation:
