My research interests are focused on sexual selection in earthworms: sperm competition, cryptic female choice and sexual conflict.Sexual selection has been historically focused on animals with separated sexes (gonochorists). However earthworms are simultaneous hermaphrodites. With both sexes in a single body, earthworms offer a new exciting scenario to study sexual selection
I am also interested in earthworm taxonomy.
