WELCOME

Research in my lab combines theoretical and empirical approaches in a variety of projects that mostly fall under the umbrella of evolutionary ecology. The majority of my research explores two main areas: (1) theoretical speciation genomics and (2) predator-prey interactions in the context of habitat selection (i.e., small scale spatial distributions and real-time interactions of organisms). This research uses a combination of analytic modeling, simulation modeling, and empirical investigations.  I have also conducted research on  the adaptive significance of morning sickness in human pregnancy, and I am a co-investigator on an award to the EBIO department from CU’s Science Education Initiative. 


I am currently seeking graduate students to join my lab.
