Our research focuses is on how evolutionary processes such as selection and drift generates the remarkable molecular and organismal patterns visible among populations and species. Our work on speciation theory incorporates a broad spectrum of approaches including population, comparative, and functional genomics.

We primarily focus on reproductive genetic systems, particularly gene networks involved in sexually dimorphic patterns of expression, in order to understand how divergence and speciation advance. Our group has a strong interest in detecting evolutionary signals from all types of digital data--whether biological, technological, or social--and studies the evolution of digital artefacts.
