I'm the PI of the Taylor Lab and the Director of the CU Boulder Mountain Research Station, which are both awesome jobs. Research in my group is focused on using natural hybrid zones and recent radiations to understand the genetic bases of traits involved in reproductive isolation, population divergence, and speciation, and the impacts of anthropogenic change, including climate change, on species distributions, interactions, and evolution. We're fascinated by natural history and the intersections between art and science, and we're committed to doing our part to increase diversity and make our community inclusive and supportive.
