Specialty

Hybridization, speciation, evolutionary ecology, and population genomics; impacts of anthropogenic change on species distributions, interactions, and evolution.

Research Interests

Hybridization, speciation, evolutionary ecology, and population genomics (primarily of birds). My research applies genomics and field experiments to natural hybrid zones and closely related taxa in order to investigate the architecture of reproductive isolation—the hallmark of speciation—and the genetic bases of traits relevant to speciation. This research also provides insight into the impacts of anthropogenic change, including climate change, on species distributions, interactions, and evolution.
