I am broadly interested in the genomic causes and consequences of evolutionary transitions among flowering plant species. I work with plants because they display rich variation in sexual system, genome structure, ploidy, gene copy number, and other genetic parameters. Because of this, extant plant species provide a rich set of natural evolutionary experiments on how modes of transmission shape genetic (and epigenetic) variation. My research interests fall largely into three non-exclusive areas (see below). Please click on the links below to read more about my interests and approaches.
