My research interest is to understand the population genetic processes that govern adaptation. I am specifically interested in phenotypic plasticity, the ability of a genotype to change its phenotype in relation to different environmental conditions, and its genetic and epigenetic basis. My group work on a number of different systems, from studying population genetic processes that governs structural variation in house sparrows to using functional genomic work with RNAi on a group of water striders to understand the genetic basis of wing polyphenism in a comparative setting.
