Current Research

I am interested in how social experiences acquired across the lifespan could be inherited by, and impose specific developmental trajectories, upon on future generations of offspring via their influences on pre- and postnatal environments. In particular, I am interested in the development of neural systems mediating fear, anxiety, reproductive and social behaviours. Further, I am interested in the adaptive significance of epigenetic changes in offspring and their implications for the evolution of behavioural traits.
