Research abstract:

Molecular and genomic evolution, genome duplication (polyploidy), duplicate gene evolution, evolution of gene regulation.

Academic history:

B.A. (1994) Earlham College;

M.S. (1996) Miami University (Ohio);

Ph.D. (2001) Indiana University;

Postdoctoral Fellow (2001-2004) Iowa State University.

Research Interests:

My research interests intersect between evolutionary biology and molecular genetics. My lab’s research is in the areas of molecular evolution, genome evolution, and gene expression. We study how gene structures, expression patterns, regulation, alternative splicing, and functions evolve. We focus on genes duplicated by whole genome duplication (polyploidy) and other duplication mechanisms at different evolutionary time scales. We use molecular techniques and bioinformatics analyses of large sequence and expression data sets (RNA-seq) to test hypotheses and answer questions.
