I am interested in molecular evolution and empirical population genetics. Current projects in my lab include: 1) transcriptome profiling of cave and surface populations of freshwater crustaceans, with an aim toward identifying and characterizing patterns of variation in differentially regulated genes, 2) experimental alteration of synonymous codons in bacterial antibiotic resistance genes, and 3) characterization of oncogenic mutations in squamous cell carcinomas of Tpl2-knockout mice.
