"My research interest broadly is the molecular interaction between marine organisms and their environment, and how these interactions drive higher-level processes, such as adaptation and evolution. Particularly, I am interested in molecular differences that give closely related species differing adaptive capacities to environmental stress. My work is highly integrative and draws on a number of fields including biochemistry, developmental biology, molecular biology, genomics, and physiology. While much of my fieldwork takes place in northern California, I also work in Mexico and on the eastern coast of the U.S."
