About

My research group studies within- and between-individual differences in behavioural and life-history traits. We are interested in how these differences evolved and why they are maintained. Our current focus is the evolution of ageing. One of the most profound challenges we all face is that we deteriorate with age – a process known as senescence. Individuals clearly senesce differently, but our understanding of how and why individuals senesce in such different ways remains limited. Our research takes a comprehensive and integrative approach to investigate why individual variation in senescence evolved and is maintained. This will generate vital knowledge on how individuals can live longer, healthier lives. For further information please visit our website: https://hannahdugdale.wordpress.com
