Research Interests

Dhobasheni Newman

I am a Research Technician in the Institute of Evolutionary Biology at the University of Edinburgh working as part of a project investigating the comparative evolutionary genetics of 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.
