My research is focused on understanding contemporary evolution in natural populations. What constrains species from expanding their ranges? How do species' interactions influence adaptive evolution to changing environmental conditions? I approach these questions using field studies, experimental quantitative genetics and population genomics. While a field biologist at heart, I enjoy statistical genetics and am an R enthusiast. You can learn more about my reseach and publications, read my open lab notebook, check out my scripts on github and download my technical reports on figshare.
