I am a broadly trained evolutionary biologist interested in understanding how organisms respond to challenges in their environment. Because the ability of individuals to respond to challenges depends on both intrinsic and extrinsic factors, my research typically integrates questions addressing the proximate mechanisms and the ultimate reasons leading to adaptive phenotypic changes. My approach is to investigate short-term behavioural and physiological responses, and long-term evolutionary outcomes, using field observations and experiments. Currently, I am researching individuals’ responses to infection, conflict, and climate change.
