Research Interests:

I joined the Zwiebel lab in July 2011 after receiving my Ph.D. from Penn State. I have major interests in molecular evolution and evolutionary genomics. I am currently performing comparative genomics on chemosensory receptor genes in ants and studying genome evolution in fungi.
