PeterPh.D. Student, in rotation

I did a rotation in the Taylor Lab as a first-year student in CU’s Interdisciplinary Quantitative Biology PhD program, and I continue to collaborate on research involving species barriers and adaptation of chickadees. I am broadly interested in the evolutionary genomics of adaptation and speciation. As a PhD student in Dr. Nolan Kane’s lab, I am currently focused on exploring the role of alternative splicing in sunflower evolution. I am also excited about using population genomics to facilitate perennial crop domestication.
