I combine ideas and techniques from the fields of evolutionary biology and quantitative genetics to obtain a better understanding of the evolutionary processes responsible for the generation and maintenance of the ubiquitous levels of diversity we see around us, both among individuals and populations. I try to disentangle the relative role of genes and the environment in shaping this variation, as well as to quantify the strength and shape of selection acting upon it.
