My research interests are in the fields of Evolutionary Ecology and Stoichiometry. For my dissertation I am looking at the impacts of dietary stoichiometry on the performance and physiology of Daphnia clones using radiotracer techniques. I am also interested in Resurrection Ecology, and will be using “resurrected” clones of Daphnia to verify the historical role of selection in determining microevolutionary trajectories in Daphnia genotypes.
