I work with butterfly-plant interactions from a variety of different angles. Most of what I do concerns the evolution of host repertoires and preference hierarchies, specialisation and host-driven diversification. Depending on what is currently happening in the lab, and on your own preference and expertise, it is possible to do projects on behaviour, life history evolution, physiology, genomics and phylogenetics. It is worth noting that practical projects are typically constrained to spring and summer, since that is when butterflies fly and natural host plants are available.
