My research focuses on the repeatability of evolution and the genetics of epidermal patterning, using the incredible diversity in floral pigment patterning in Clarkia as a model.
I am interested in the evolution of selfing syndrome characters in morning glories.
I am interested in the evolution of flower color. Specifically, I am trying to understand the evolution of floral patterns in Clarkia.
My research focuses on parallel adaptation and speciation in plants.
My research focuses on plant dispersal over broad geographic ranges. I'm also interested in taxonomy and phylogenetic methods.
taxonomy and phylogenetic methods.
I am interested in testing how selection and gene flow may affect the process of speciation in natural field settings.
I'm interested in the evolution of defensive traits in the plants, especially how could proteins perform new functions with arising neutral or selected substitutions.
