Graduate students in the lab work on a range of evolutionary and ecological questions and on projects that are most often independent of my research. Projects have focused on the determinants of species distributions at ecological and evolutionary time scales, determinants of genetic variation within and among populations, adaptation with respect to biotic and abiotic environments, meta-population dynamics, and behavioral ecology. Students have worked on both plants and animals.
**I am not accepting any graduate students during the 2019-2020 admissions cycle**
Postdocs often join in my own research and expand on the work in directions of particular interest. Postdocs have also brought independent funding for their own research projects.
Undergraduate students often begin as assistants on my research or that of my graduate students and postdocs. Some students also develop independent projects that often lead to honors theses.
