Research Interest:

My research is focused on two main questions:
1) How can the integration of the animal sensory systems be used for adaptation to their environments? 2) How can information about natural selection be used in the dissection of genotype-phenotype correlations?  My lab investigates these questions using a combination of empirical and computational approaches to analyze the large-scale genomic data.
