Ecological and Evolutionary Genomics
We investigate patterns of genomic variation in plants seeking to uncover the evolutionary processes that underlie the diversification of species throughout natural habitats. In particular, we want to know - how do plants adapt to their local environment? We work within two areas in evolutionary biology to answer this question: population genetics and phylogenomics. At the population-level, we use traditional genetic and NextGen genomic tools to elucidate the role of geographic barriers and biological traits in shaping spatial and temporal population patterns. At the species level we combine phylogenetics and genomics to reconstruct species relationships and understand how gene innovations enabled species to adapt and evolve.
We are a new lab, new students and postdocs are welcome to apply!
