Specific Interests

My research is focused on understanding the interplay of environment-phenotype-genotype in in natural populations across both space and time. We use innovative techniques to quantify environmental and phenotypic diversity that we pair with genomic data to infer the patterns and processes underlying neutral and adaptive variation. We sometimes pair contemporary and historical sampling so we can quantify how these patterns and processes have shifted temporally in concert with Anthropogenic change. Recent research has centered on the adaptive radiation of Greater Antilles Anolis lizards, the adaptive and non-adaptive radiations of White-eyes (Zosterops), climate and biome change in South African aridlands and landscape genetics of resident birds, the Ensatina salamander ring species, and Southeast Asian amphibian and reptile diversity.
