“I entered university intending to study medicine, but my interest in natural history quickly allowed me to abandon sanity and change to zoology. I became embroiled in the squalid sex life of dung flies just before the behavioural ecology revolution was about to change forever the study of behavioural adaptation. This in turn lead to the pursuit of questions and concepts; a life of theoretical modelling of sex, conflict,contests, and other delights. It has been great fun.”
