Research interests:

Our lab is keen to understand how organisms adapt to highly variable ecosystems. We focus on cases where phenotypes and/or alleles evolve to track rapid, and often cyclical, changes in the environment. In this context, we ask questions about the degrees of parallelism and predictability of rapid evolution across natural populations.

Research organisms:

Drosophila melanogaster and D. suzukii.
