My central research goal is to understand the evolution and function of the complex molecular networks that underlie life. The connection between changes in genes and changes in organism function has long been a critical gap in molecular evolution research. Systems biology research is now revealing the mechanisms that bridge that gap. My research program thus integrates population genomics and systems biology to incorporate molecular mechanisms into evolutionary genetics.
