My lab uses physiology to understand how animals function in their environment. Our research explores the physiological capacity of organisms to tolerate environmental change by blending experimental biology with simulation-based computer models that convert landscapes into physiological experiences. The approach requires insight from behavior, physiology, and physics to answer questions related to species' range dynamics and adaptation. By synthesizing these disciplines, we provide a comprehensive understanding of organisms, from genes to geographic ranges, while improving our capacity to predict the impact of climate change.
