Teaching Specializations/Interests

Genetics, Genomics, Population and Evolutionary Genetics

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in the study of population variation, evolutionary processes, and organismal biology using the tools of molecular genetics.

Recent and current projects have investigated the evolution of a number of different genes, as well as the population genetics of a number of different species.

In past research I have studied the evolution and organismal biology of various insects, including swallowtail butterflies, malaria mosquitoes, and fruit flies.
