My research focuses on the intersection of evolution, ecology, and behaviour. Broadly, I seek to understand how variation in selective pressures affects the origins and evolution of biological diversity. More specifically, I focus on adaptation and how it is affected by spatial and temporal variation in selection. Understanding such processes is critical in contemporary times due to humans having an unprecedented influence on the environment.
NEWS: I will be starting as an assistant professor at Brock University on August 1, 2021. If you are interested in field or laboratory based research answering the often fascinating questions related to how organisms respond to different selective pressures and the consequential ecological impact,I strongly encourage you to contact me.
