Prospective Students

I am currently accepting MSc and PhD students. Interested applicants should send a CV, an unofficial transcript along with a cover letter summarizing their research interests, academic background, and skills. Please check my lab website for additional details.


I am interested in evolutionary interactions at various levels, from within loci to between coevolving species. In the past, I have worked on topics including social evolution, mutation load, sexual selection, the evolution of sex & recombination, and host-parasite coevolution. A reoccurring theme in this research is how genetic systems (within individuals, within social groups, between species) affect evolution. See my homepage for more details.
