Diversification in lineages exposed to novel environments. Observing present-day patterns of biodiversity, inferring past evolutionary processes, conducting manipulative laboratory experiments.
Postdoc (NSF Fellow)
Mechanisms underlying speciesí responses to environmental change, including current work on the genomics of host-pathogen dynamics in frogs and chytrid.
Postdoc (President's Fellow)
Neurobiology underlying mate choice and mechanisms of speciation in White Sands lizards.
Postdoc (Miller Fellow)
Evolution and ecology of adaptive radiation in Caribbean pupfishes and Cameroon crater lake cichlids.
Genetic mechanisms of adaptive evolution in White Sands lizards using comparative population 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.
