Evolutionary Developmental Biology - Maternal Effects

Structure-Function Relationships - Systematics - Botany 

Bryology (Mosses) - Science Communication


Our research focuses on the development, evolution, and function of plant structures. We study morphological features that are used to distinguish species taxonomically and those that are important for reproduction and fitness. Our research also focuses on the relationship between maternal gametophytes and their sporophyte offspring. We use electron microscopy, molecular systematic techniques, and manipulation experiments to address my research questions.
