Research Interests

My research focuses on evolutionary ecology, including population and quantitative genetics. My thesis research concerned the distribution and fitness effects of spontaneous mutations, accumulated over many generations, in the plant species Raphanus raphanistrum and Arabidopsis thaliana. My current research includes projects focusing on the population genetics of invasive crayfish, genotype-environment interaction for new mutations in Arabidopsis thaliana, and somatic selection in A. thaliana. Check out the Research link on the navigation panel for more information.
Students interested in working in my lab should stop by my office or email me.
