Our lab is addressing questions in
evolutionary biology, with a special focus on animal behavior.
Among other things, we are interested in how sexual reproduction
is maintained. We tackle this problem at several levels, including
molecular biology, animal behavior and ecology. Consequently we
use a broad array of research methods. Our study species are
mainly livebearing fishes, but we are not limited to them.
In the Fall of 2012 the College of Arts and Science, the
Department of Biology, and our lab hosted distinguished guest
Travis from FSU. The interview he gave during his visit
can be found in youtube
(closed-captioning available) and in vimeo.
Ingo was awarded a Friedrich Wilhelm
Bessel Research Award by the Alexander von Humboldt
Foundation. The award is for "Scientists and scholars,
internationally renowned in their field, who completed their
doctorates less than 18 years ago and who in future are expected
to continue producing cutting-edge achievements which will have a
seminal influence on their discipline beyond their immediate field
of work" (cited directly from the Von
Ingo's co-edited book is now available from University of Chicago
