I’m primarily interested in how an individual’s genes and the environment in which it grows come together to determine its physical traits. I study a group of closely related freshwater fish called cichlids which live in the African rift lakes like Victoria, Malawi, and Tanganyika. So far I’ve been examining the effect of diet and genetics on the pectoral fins.
