As an integrative biologist in a time of changing climate, major anthropogenic drivers as well as local environmental perturbations frame my work.  I employ a hypothesis driven approach with robust lab and field components to provide a deeper mechanistic understanding of biological adaptations that promote physiological homeostasis and ecological persistence of organisms under a changing environment.
