I enjoyed a PhD in developmental genetics in Tübingen Germany, where I worked with Markus Schmid and Detlef Weigel at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology. After finishing my NIH NRSA postdoc at Harvard, I started a group working on understanding adaptation to both environmental and genomic forces.
Currently (June 2015) we are moving to the U.K. to start a new lab at the John Innes Centre in Norwich, U.K, where we will be housed in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology. The overall aim of our work is to determine how evolution finds solutions to difficult problems by leveraging innovative population genomic approaches. I'm excited to apply these approaches to several new systems that you'll see in the research pages of this web site.
