of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
from the molecular to the whole-organism level,
research in my laboratory is focused on the energy acquisition
strategies of organisms. In short, I am interested in
understanding how organisms make a living and the consequences of
different energy acquisition strategies for ecosystem fluxes.
