Eihab has a bachelor's degree in Ecology from the University of Khartoum. He is a research assistant in a marine biology laboratory in Sudan. Their research there is limited to applied issues, but his interest has always been evolutionary biology. EvoFish project on selective fishing provided him the opportunity to pursue fundamental evolutionary questions in the context of applied fisheries. He is investigating the potential evolutionary effects of size-selective fishing on the coloration of male guppies. We are curious to see whether selection on size can affect male coloration and, consequently, interferes with sexual selection in guppies.
