I teach courses that focus on plants, evolution, conservation, and experimental methods. Many of my courses have an emphasis on quantitative skills, and I encourage students to be actively engaged in lecture and lab.


In my lab, we use both molecular tools and field observations to answer questions about the microevolutionary processes that shape lineage evolution. Current projects address deer overabundance as a cause of natural selection in plants, and the population genetic structure of a fern species.
