BIO

My research focuses on the application of genomics to plant phylogeny and speciation. Major topics of current investigation include:

  1. Phylogenomics of milkweeds (Asclepias) including the sequencing of the A. syriaca genome
  2. Comparitive genomics of Rosaceae and the strawberry genus (Fragaria)
  3. Phylogenetic studies of pines (Pinus) and the pine family (Pinaceae)
