Areas of Expertise and/or Research

My research focuses on climate-mediated local adaptation in non-model organisms. I'm particularly interested in non-coding loci and how changes in gene regulation may manifest in transcriptomic differences that result in different selectable phenotypes. I like to study species that have undergone recent range expansions or ecosystem invasions to give my work a community ecology and conservation lens.
