Research

research overview

  • Research in our lab investigates the process of adaptation. Natural selection and evolution occur within an ecological context, so a major goal of our work is to examine the ecological circumstances associated with short-term evolutionary changes. We are currently particularly interested in maternal effects and other indirect effects of the social environment on adaptation

courses taught

  • EBIO 3080 - Evolutionary Biology
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021
    Lect. and lab. Emphasizes the fundamental evolutionary concepts that provide explanations for the diversification of life on Earth. Specific topics include the evidence for evolution, adaptation by natural selection, speciation, systematics, molecular and genome evolution, and macroevolutionary patterns and processes. Recitations allow students to explore specific topics in more depth and smaller groups. Recommended prerequisites: EBIO 1210 and EBIO 1220 (minimum grade C-). Degree credit not granted for this course and EBIO 3680.
  • EBIO 4410 - Biological Statistics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Spring 2021
    Lect. and lab. Offers a demanding, problems-oriented methods course in statistical inference procedures, assumptions, limitations, and applications emphasizing techniques appropriate to realistic biological problems. Includes data file management using interactive computing techniques. Recommended prerequisites: EBIO 1210 and EBIO 1220 and EBIO 1230 and EBIO 1240 (minimum grade C-). Same as EBIO 5410.
