My research utilizes molecular biology techniques in conjunction with physiological and metabolic studies to study the hemoglobin oxygen-affinity, energetics and evolutionary physiology of shrews and moles (and other semi-aquatic mammals), with a focus on the specializations these insectivores have evolved to cope with hypoxia/hypercapnia and temperature. Our lab is also actively spearheading several projects that are focused on elucidating the functional/structural properties and physiochemical evolution of authentic gene products resurrected from DNA sequences of extinct mammalian species (e.g. woolly mammoth, woolly rhinoceros and Steller's sea cow). More information can be found at my personal website .

Research Interests

Paleophysiology of extinct Pleistocene mammals, Physiology, Evolutionary, molecular and environmental physiology of mammals, Evolutionary physiology of fossorial and semi-aquatic insectivores
