Research Description

My lab's mission is to advance our understanding of biological responses to global change and contribute to solutions for people and nature.

Research Summary

We aim to advance our fundamental understanding of the drivers of biodiversity change and the consequences of these changes for human well-being. Our research advances a solution to this research challenge by studying the processes that unite all of life on Earth – the metabolic processes by which living systems uptake, store and convert energy, matter and information from their environments to grow and persist. We combine theory, experiments and synthesis to study how living systems change as the environment changes, and what these changes mean for human well-being.

Techniques Used

We use a combination of experimental evolution, whole-genome re-sequencing, and competition experiments.
