I’m no longer active as a biologist, instead focused on my work as a data professional. My previous research was wide-ranging; my interests broadly focused in evolutionary ecology and comparative physiology. I worked to better understand the physiological, nutritional, and developmental basis of variation in fitness-related traits, and how this variation relates to demography, behavior, and macro-evolutionary patterns. For example, how do hormones evolve in response to selection on the phenotypes they regulate developmentally? What are the cascading consequences of molecular evolution for investment in fitness-related traits, and how does this impact demography and behavior?
