My research interests are focused on understanding how novel protein functions (e.g., resistance to toxins) evolve. I design my studies to investigate broad-scale patterns of evolution as well as mechanisms of adaptation at different hierarchical levels of biological organization. Consequently my work covers genomic evolution (in silico), molecular function (in vitro), and whole organism physiology (in vivo).
I am applying this interdisciplinary approach to elucidating the evolution of cardiotonic steroid resistance in vertebrates.
