I am broadly interested in the developmental origins of adaptive physiological traits. I use a comparative physiology approach to ask three big questions about animals that live in extreme environments. What special adaptations allow juveniles to survive to adulthood? How does rearing environment program adult phenotype? How does maternal-offspring conflict alter the physiology of both moms and babies?
