Evolutionary & Physiological Ecology

My research fields are at the intersection of evolutionary ecology, ecophysiology, behavioral ecology, molecular ecology and ecotoxicology, thus I consider myself as an integrative biologist. I am broadly interested in the proximate and ultimate mechanisms underlying life-history and  phenotypic variation. I want to understand how physiologically-regulated traits enable organismal adaptation to changing environmental conditions.  I have passion for understanding the contribution of non-genetic inheritance on phenotypic variation, in the context of extended evolutionary synthesis, and thus my group studies various mechanisms of non-genetic inheritance, such as  maternal hormones, epigenetics and microbiome.  We also run one of the only eco-endocrinology labs focused on thyroid hormones.
