My research interests are focused on identifying specialized adaptations in organisms and understanding how they 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 mechanisms of toxin resistance in predators of toxic prey. See collaborators here.
