Research Interests:

My lab is interested in the adaptive evolution of developmental, physiological, and life history traits in natural plant populations. We use quantitative genetics, QTL mapping, and association studies of candidate loci to examine the genetic basis of natural variation in ecologically important traits in Arabidopsis thaliana. We also measure natural selection on these traits and the loci underlying them in the field by experimentally manipulating environments, phenotypes, and genotypes.
