My lab group studies a range of questions in the area of ecological and evolutionary genomics, with an emphasis on rapid evolution and conservation biology. We use two model systems: Mimulus guttatus (monkeyflower) and Daphnia (water fleas). Current projects center on 1) investigating epigenetic inheritance of defensive traits induced by parental leaf damage, and 2) understanding the molecular basis of adaptation in Daphnia in response to introduced fish predators. We use a combination of field work, molecular tools, and mathematical modeling.
