Tim Birkhead is a professor of behaviour and evolution at the University of Sheffield. His research on promiscuity and sperm competition in birds helped to re-shape current understanding of bird mating systems.

Tim's research has taken him to Canadian High Arctic, Labrador, California, Australia, Africa and Europe. Since 1972 he has maintained a long-term study of guillemots on Skomer Island, Wales which is where he did his PhD. Tim has been president of the International Society for Behavioural Ecology and currently serves on the management committee of the Darwin Correspondence Project.
