Research Interests

Dr. Soper is interested in the impact of host/parasite coevolution on the evolution of reproduction. She uses a freshwater snail from New Zealand to determine how parasitic infection within populations alters reproductive behavior.  She has also used a seed beetle to determine how male competition influences the evolution of male genital morphology.
