I'm working on the Hawaiian field cricket system, in which males of the field cricket Teleogryllus oceanicus have repeatedly lost the ability to sing under selection from an acoustically orienting parasitoid fly. My research involves combining fieldwork and laboratory observations with RNA and DNA sequencing to better understand the conditions promoting repeated adaptive evolution.
