Personal profile


Upama Aich is a behavioural evolutionary biologist who is interested in the evolution of behavioural, reproductive, and morphological traits in light of sexual selection and environmental changes. Her postdoctoral research project aims to look at the long-term, intergenerational effects of endocrine disruptors in Australian freshwater fish. 

Her PhD research at the Australian National University focused on sexual selection and ageing in a model species while asking a broad question- 'Does age matter in male reproductive success?' Hint: it does, but the results may surprise you. 

Upama completed her Masters's research project at the Department of Zoology, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. There, she studied the association between the life stages of an aposematic butterfly and phenology and its host plant.
