Our lab is broadly interested in understanding how an organism responds to novel environments. Such organismal persistence generally occurs through genetic adaptation, phenotypic plasticity, or a combination of these two processes. We are particularly interested in exploring the relative roles of such processes of genetic adaptation and phenotypic plasticity that underlie a trait evolution. We integrate a variety of interdisciplinary approaches, including comparative ‘omics’ (Genomics, Transcriptomics, Epigenomics and Metabolomics), Ecology, and Natural history to uncover the molecular basis underlying the processes of adaptive evolution. We work with a variety of non-model systems that includes birds, lizards, frogs and mammals.
