Department of Biology
- The most basic description of my professional motivations have not changed since a childhood spent in the woods and streams of New England: I am interested in living things. Their diversity. Their changes through time. The ways they come be what they are. These impulses are focused into a research program that explores genes and their interactions as influences on the anatomical structure of animals, particularly beetles and true bugs (Hemiptera), including the roles of gene expression in population-level phenotypic divergence and comparative developmental genetics. I teach courses in genetics, molecular biology, developmental biology, and evolutionary developmental biology.
