My interests are in the evolutionary histories that have led to animal diversity. My research and courses explore how development and genetics intersect with morphological evolution. My lab uses developmental genetics, molecular biology, morphometrics and phylogenetics to understand the interactions and functions of genes in various insect models. More details and updates are available at our lab webpage, Aphanotus
My lab is currently studying the development and evolution of alternative wing morphs in the red shouldered soapberry bug (Jadera haematoloma
). This project includes a citizen-science initiative to survey the "Bugs in our Backyard"
, which involves K-12 students and teachers in public schools across the Eastern US.
