About the Lab

We are in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Current projects address phylogeny, polyploid evolution, and genetic diversity within and among populations. We use molecular data using both traditional and next-generation sequencing methods to study evolutionary questions, and are equipped for techniques commonly used in phylogenetic and population biology analyses. (Visit the People in the Lab for details on specific projects.)
