Natural History Collections • Population Genomic Structure • Species Interactions • Sonoran Desert

I am an evolutionary ecologist tackling fundamental questions at the intersection of ecology and evolution with a diverse methodological toolbox. In particular, my work connects ecological processes to the generation and maintenance of genetic and genomic variation.  My research program employs two complementary perspectives to address long-standing questions about the role of ecology in adaptation and speciation:

  • How can we predict population genetic patterns from ecological processes observed in the field?
  • How can we infer the importance of ecological processes from population genomic patterns?IMG_4214
