Animals, like humans, may behave in consistent ways and hence be described as having 'personality'. Most of the research concerning animal personality has focused on proximate questions about the development and repeatability of personality types, while a fundamental understanding of the adaptive basis of personality variation has been relatively un-studied. My research focuses on the fitness consequences of personality variation, and tries to understand the ecological, social, and genetic mechanisms responsible for causing and maintaining that variation within personality types.
