Research Summary

My research focuses on the basic forces that shape fitness traits in natural populations. I also use a systems biology approach to probe the mechanisms by which genotypes shape phenotypes. The evolution of aging serves as a conceptual focus for much of our work, but the lab is equally marked by the diversity of interests of the students and post-docs, including neurodegenerative disease, sexual selection, and epigenetics. While most lab studies are on flies, I also run an NIH-funded nationwide study on the systems biology of aging in pet dogs (https://www.dogagingproject.com).
