Research interests
My research interests lie at the interface between evolutionary and systems biology. I seek to understand the evolution of complex traits by studying the processes by which the gene-regulatory networks underlying development diverge. For more details, see the lab Research page.

Research interests
I'm interested in how evolution is influenced or constrained by basic features of the cellular environment, the architecture of genomes, or the structure of regulatory networks. For example, the deleterious interaction between misfolded proteins and the cellular environment may confine coding sequences to those producing stably-folded proteins. In another example, redundancy in regulatory networks may produce phenotypes that are robust to genetic or environmental change.

Research interests
I'm interested in the relationship between genotype and phenotype. My current study focuses on buffering mechanisms of phenotypic capacitors.

Research interests
Using a novel growth phenotyping assay, I explore within and between genotype variations in the cellular response to low nutrient concentrations. In particular, I aim to determine the molecular components that are important for this response and how have they been modified throughout evolution.
