  • Research:

    The research in my lab combines functional and population genomic
    approaches in a variety of species of Drosophila to better understand
    how gene regulatory networks evolve at the molecular level. By using
    computational approaches to generate evolutionary hypotheses that can
    be tested via the genetic engineering of model species our work
    bridges the disciplines of evolutionary biology, molecular biology,
    and bioinformatics.
