I am an evolutionary biologist who employs ecological and genetic approaches to infer evolutionary process. A unifying theme in my research is the use of molecular data to investigation of the factors influencing gene flow (or lack thereof) and their impacts on the structuring of genetic variation plants and associated insects over a broad range of temporal and spatial scales. This theme is exemplified most of the research projects underway in my lab.
