B.S. Biology, University of Dayton, 2009
- My research focuses on the mechanistic basis of local adaptation to abiotic environments. I work primarily on the killifish, Fundulus heteroclitus. These fish are typically found in marine habitats, but a few populations inhabit exclusively freshwater environments. I combine physiological, transcriptomic, and genomic approaches to understand how selection has shaped phenotypes in these different salinities.
