diverse faculty interests
world class faculty study a wide spectrum of research areas including, Behavior, Conservation Biology, Developmental Biology, Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, Marine Biology, Paleobiology, Plant Biology, Physiological Ecology, Theory, and Tropical Biology.
I am interested in the evolutionary genetics of wild animal populations, particularly of dogs and dog relatives. A new aspect of our work is to identify and study specific genes that influence the form, physiology, and behavior of organisms in nature.
