About my research
My research explores the mechanisms underlying species’ responses to rapid environmental change and their potential to affect species persistence. I study phenotypic plasticity, adaptive genetic change, and geographic range shifts to understand organisms’ capacity for responding to novel conditions, and constraints limiting adjustment to rapid environmental change. Many of our current research projects also focus on how anthropogenic factors such as land use and environmental toxins affect wildlife. Read more on the RESEARCH page.
