Research Interests
My lab is interested in complex performance phenotypes, such as how fishes swim and feed at the same time during prey capture. We use a biomechanical approach to understand the function of each system, as well as how these two systems work together. This work is important for understanding the constraints on performance in an organism, since changes in one system can have dramatic consequences for the outcome of the common task. We examine these questions from the perspective of ecology and evolution. For example, how does this complex relationship affect an organism’s daily survival in its environment or its ability to adapt to new environments?
