Our research focus on the evolution of phenotypic plasticity and local adaptation of population and species in response to environmental changes. We use dragonflies, frogs and fish as my model organisms, and we focus on life history traits and neutral genetic markers. Currently we have five projects running: please visit our [Research] page to find out more about the main themes of our research:

* Cryptic genetic variation and adaptation in novel environments
* Evolutionary ecology of colour communication in sexual selection and predator-prey interactions
* Potential impact on five common pesticides on aquatic biodiversity
* Urban ponds: the relationship between biodiversity and socio- economic factors
* Potential responses to climate change: from genotype to community level
