I am broadly interested in the diversity of form and function from an ecological and evolutionary framework, particularly in species with unique biology. However, my main research drive is on how changing environments constrain the physiology and life history of organisms while understanding the mechanisms for how they cope with environmental stressors. My work primarily utilise ectotherms like reptiles, amphibians, and fish as model systems, and I approach my research from an integrative perspective, from molecular to whole-organism to macroecological responses.
