PhD Topic/Title: Effect of resource availability on phenotypic expression and fitness correlates in carnivorous plants.


An evolutionary ecologist with interests in how resource availability affects life history strategies of species. Primarily, he works on carnivorous plants in peatland ecosystems. In these environments he measures the expression of plant traits in relation to different resources including light, prey capture and habitat. He also has an interest in the biochemical basis of carnivory in plants, particularly secondary plant metabolites used for signaling in a unique nutrient regulation system.
