research overview

  • I am interested in the developmental and genetic changes underlying driving the origin and diversification of vertebrates. To address this question I compare developmental mechanisms between diverse chordates, including the invertebrate chordate amphioxus, the jawless vertebrate lamprey, and the traditional gnathostome developmental models, Xenopus laevis, zebrafish, and axolotl.

courses taught

  • EBIO 2070 - Genetics: Molecules to Populations
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2020
    Lect. and rec. Covers principles of genetics and developmental biology at levels of molecules, cellular organelles, individuals and populations; asexual and sexual life cycles; heredity. Recitations allow discussion of genetics problems and implications of genetic principles and provide demonstrations and simulations of genetic processes. Intended for sophomore majors in EBIO. Recommended prerequisites: EBIO 1210 and EBIO 1220 and EBIO 1230 and EBIO 1240 (minimum grade C-). Credit not granted for this course and EBIO 2640.
  • EBIO 4440 - Animal Developmental Diversity
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Surveys development in a range of vertebrate and invertebrate systems to reconstruct the common bilatorian ancestor, and elucidate the developmental genetic changes underlying animal diversification. Lab focuses on vertebrate embryos and explores key methods in evolutionary developmental biology including in situ hybridization, embryo microinjection, and transgenesis. Recommended prerequisites: MCDB 1150 or EBIO 1210 and MCDB 2150 or EBIO 2070 (minimum grade C-). Same as EBIO 5440 and MCDB 4441 and MCDB 5441.
  • EBIO 5440 - Animal Developmental Diversity
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Surveys development in a range of vertebrate and invertebrate systems to reconstruct the common bilatorian ancestor, and elucidate the developmental genetic changes underlying animal diversification. Lab focuses on vertebrate embryos and explores key methods in evolutionary developmental biology including in situ hybridization, embryo microinjection, and transgenesis.

  • EBIO 6300 - Seminar in Organismic Biology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    May be repeated up to 7 total credit hours.
