Ecology, evolution, and quantitative methods. The research group combines data collected on natural populations of organisms, laboratory rearing experiments, and computer simulations to study the way organisms interact with their environments and the genetic and non-genetic inheritance of characteristics across time and generations. In particular, we focus on how differences among individuals in they way they look, perform, or behave affect survival, mating success, and reproductive output to quantitatively predict population level changes within and between generations.
