Life history evolution using field studies, laboratory experiments, and mathematical/computational modeling
I am addressing fundamental questions in life history evolution using field studies, laboratory experiments (physiological and molecular genetic), and mathematical/computational modeling in two systems: laboratory populations of mice (with T Garland Jr. and PA Carter) natural populations of garter snakes (with SJ Arnold). With these two systems I am currently focusing on the evolution of senescence using two complementary approaches (i) to manipulate model systems to identify the genetics and evolvability of senescence and (ii) to ask how and why senescence evolves in natural populations.
