My research interests are focused on understanding how extreme adaptations (e.g., resistance to toxins) work and how they evolved. I consider myself a highly collaborative and integrative biologist, and I explore research questions that cut across traditional disciplinary boundaries. Consequently, I design my studies to investigate broad-scale patterns of organismal evolution as well as mechanisms of adaptation at different hierarchical levels of biological organization, from organismal physiology to molecular function. Currently, I am applying this interdisciplinary approach to researching the evolution of cardiac glycoside resistance in vertebrate Na+K+ATPases. See collaborators here.
