About Me

As an evolutionary physiologist, I am interested in how an organism's physiology allows it to survive and reproduce in its environment.  My research focuses especially on how lipid membranes affect physiological processes such as cutaneous water loss and metabolic rate.  I integrate organismal physiology with physical and analytical chemistry techniques to make correlations between these physiological processes and the composition and interactions of lipids in cells and tissues.  Please use the links on the left hand side of this page to learn more about my research and teaching.
