Areas of Expertise
- molecular evolution
- DNA barcoding
- transposable element evolution
My research uses DNA sequence data to understand evolution, adaptation, and diversification. My principle experimental subjects include the model organism, Drosophila, and shore flies (Ephydridae) of Great Salt Lake.
My teaching expertise includes genetics and cell biology and I have developed numerous laboratory exercises that expose students to every modern experimental technique in these disciplines. Students in these courses also regularly read, discuss, and understand current research papers.
