Maintenance of genetic variation/polymorphism; evolution of sexual dimorphism; plant ecological interactions (pollinators, pathogens); environmental health
A large team of vibrant undergraduates is involved in a diverse array of projects with me throughout the year. In short, we work in the following areas combining field, greenhouse, laboratory, and theoretical methods. If you are interested in joining our group, please contact me.
- The maintenance of floral-color variation and the genetic integration of volatile, pigmentation, and reproductive traits in plants.
- The adaptive nature of floral symmetry.
- The evolution of sexual dimorphism.
- The efficacy of traditional medicines in Upstate New York Native American culture.
- Environmental health in southwestern Uganda with a focus on drinking water quality and infectious disease transmission.
