Research:  I work on a diverse array of topics in the areas of population, ecological and evolutionary genetics. This includes the study of:

• Evolution of mating systems and reproductive isolation

• Genetic and environmental sources of phenotypic and fitness variation

• The process of adaptation, using experimental evolution techniques
