We study the evolution of diversity in nature. Understanding how diversity is promoted and maintained within species is crucial for predicting the impact of selection and the potential for adaptive evolution at all biological levels. Our research integrates evolutionary biology, physiology, transcriptomics, and genomics to understand both the evolution and function of phenotypic and genetic variation at different levels of biological organization – between sexes, within species, and among species.
