I am interested in animal adaptations to harsh environments with a focus on cavefishes and anglerfishes. I use phylogenomics, comparative genomics, morphology, and physiology (sensory perception) to better understand the adaptations of fishes to the unique demands of lightless environments including caves and the deep sea. My research is driven by a passion for maintaining biodiversity of organisms, particularly those that are adapted to environments at-risk for anthropogenic disturbance like groundwater aquifers.
