My long-term goal is to understand both the molecular mechanisms and the evolution of adaptive traits. To this end, my lab is using both phenotype-first and genotype-first approaches to identify genetic variants with a potential role in local, regional or global adaptation. Our studies benefit greatly from knowledge about the genomes of other species, and from a historical perspective that exploits the knowledge stored in herbaria.
