One of the basic challenges of evolutionary ecology is to identify sources of natural selection—whether in the physical environment or the biological community—that have shaped, and continue to shape, the diversity of natural populations. Understanding how selection acts on ecologically important phenotypes and the genotypes that create them has applications in conservation, predicting the outcomes of global change, agricultural practice, and public health policy. I seek to build this understanding using population genetic and genomic, ecological, and phylogenetic methods, as well as mathematical theory and computational modeling.
