Research Interests:

I am interested in functional adaptations of organisms to their environment. I use a variety of techniques in both the laboratory and in the field. I focus on insects because they dominate the terrestrial biosphere (at least among metazoan taxa), where they inhabit a wide array of environments, and because they are evolutionarily, morphologically, and functionally diverse. Some current projects include: flight and thermal physiology of alpine bumblebees, behavioral drive and the evolution of flightlessness in alpine insects, physiological explanations for body size clines, and experimental evolution of thermal preference in Drosophila.
