Background and activities

Research in my lab involves analyzing genome sequences in order to reconstruct and interpret the evolutionary histories of plants, animals, and their pathogens. I am particularly attracted to cases in which ancient/degraded DNA derived from natural history collections allows us to explain present-day distributions of biodiversity by looking directly into the past.

Research opportunities for graduate students are available in my lab. I encourage you to make contact if you are interested in becoming involved.
