Research Interests

Dhobasheni Newman

I am a Research Technician in the Institute of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Edinburgh working as part of a project investigating genetic variation for fitness in Drosophila. I love insects and am generally interested in behavioural and evolutionary biology, particularly conflicted systems and understanding how coevolution interacts with other factors to influence trait and species evolution. I've researched sexual conflict, but am also fascinated by other systems of coevolution including mimicry, weird symbioses and predator-prey interactions.
