Causes and consequences of spatial and temporal patterns of genetic variation.
Conservation genetics & genomics.
Frog-chytrid host-pathogen interactions: identifying differences in host response to chytridiomycosis, using population genomics to study pathogen evolution, applying population genetics to conservation of endangered frogs.
Mechanisms underlying adaptive coloration in amphibians, across genomic to ecological levels
Convergent evolution, coloration, and population genetics of lava flow reptiles and conservation genetics in threatened taxa.
Sexual selection and signaling behavior, specifically exploring the role of female preferences in mating behavior and signal evolution in jumping spiders.
Evolutionary ecology of White Sands lizards.
Spatial and temporal variation in chytrid virulence and spread, evolutionary history of host-pathogen interactions, amphibian conservation.
