The integrated nature of form and function dictates that phenotypes often vary in relation to local ecological factors. Tegan is interested in the development and evolution of phenotypic variation in threespine stickleback from Pender Harbour, BC. Tegan using three-dimensional computed microtomography imaging, morphometric tools and QTL mapping. Tegan is co-supervised with Dr. H. Jamniczky
I am interested in how sexual selection and intersexual conflict shape the evolution of traits involved in mating, and how trade-offs between traits may develop based on the ecology and/or mating system of an organism. Currently, I am examining the role of sperm density as a selective force on the evolution of multiple gamete traits…
In general I’m interested in the reproduction and recruitment of marine benthic invertebrates. Currently my research is focused on how heterogeneity within colonial corals may contribute to genetic diversity and coral reef resiliency.
