Taxa Studied: Invertebrate Animals, Tribolium castaneum; Tribolium species; flour beetles; Oncopeltus fasciatus; milkweed bugs; Jadera haematoloma; soapberry bugs; amphipods
Techniques Employed: Degenerate PCR, Quantitative PCR (qPCR), Sanger Sequencing, Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, In Situ Hybridization, Antibody Staining, RNA interference(RNAi)
Research Description: My lab is interested in the evolution of phenotypic diversity and its underlying genetic basis. We work with insects, primarily flour beetles, such as Tribolium castaneum, and true bugs, such as the milkweed bug, Oncopeltus fasciatus. We are exploring basic questions of developmental patterning, especially among appendages, as well as species and population level evolution of morphology and allometry.
