Research in our lab focuses on describing biological diversity, determining the role of ecological and evolutionary processes in generating this diversity, and developing management and conservation strategies that incorporate these processes. We apply genetic approaches to address research questions, while integrating spatial environmental data, ecological variation, physiological experiments, and morphological analysis.The major research themes of the lab include:

Rapid evolutionary change
Biogeography, local adaptation and gene flow across landscapes
Biological responses to global change
Species diversity and conservation
Insect Physiology and Alpine Biology
