New Faculty:

The Biological Sciences is pleased to welcome several new people to the Department.

Alison Scoville, our new tenure-track Assistant Professor in Biology, investigates fundamental questions in evolutionary biology, with an emphasis on phenotypic plasticity, rapid evolution and biological conservation. She uses two model systems, Mimulus guttatus (yellow monkeyflower) and Daphnia (water fleas), and integrates field studies, molecular biology, and mathematical modeling. Dr. Scoville received her B.A. in Biology from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota and her Ph.D. in Biology from Utah State University. Most recently, she comes from a postdoctoral position at the University of Kansas and Haskell Indian Nations University. Dr. Scoville currently teaches General Biology I.
