Teaching

I currently teach two courses:

EEB135/235: Population Genetics. This is an upper-level undergraduate, introductory graduate course on population genetics. We cover the basics of population genetics, including linkage disequilibrium, genetic drift, selection, quantitative genetics, molecular evolution, and tests of neutrality. While the course is heavily focused on population genetic models and requires quantitative thinking ability, the course does not require an advanced math background. I am teaching this course in the spring quarter.

EEB 200A: Evolutionary Biology. This is the introductory evolution class for the EEB graduate students. My portion of the course focuses on current topics in evolutionary genetics. I bridge population genetic models with current questions and data. The course is co-taught with Bob Wayne and Mike Alfaro. I teach this course the in the fall quarter.
