Population Divergence and Adaptation in an intertidal copepod (T. californicus)
I will be working in the Tigriopus californicus system, where I can both contribute my expertise, as well as expand my horizons on genomics/evolution.
Generally, I will be asking questions about...
Specific projects: (1) Molecular avenues for hypoxia adaptation, (2) Oxygen stress and mito-nuclear incompatibilities (3) The role of miRNAs in abiotic stress response
