Developing a new treatment to tackle antibiotic resistance
Horizontal gene transfer (HGT), the lateral spread of genetic material between bacteria, has been implicated as a major driving force in the global spread of antibiotic resistance genes.
Evolutionary ecology and genetics of plant adaptation
We study genotype-environment interactions and their contribution to plant adaptation.
Evolutionary genetics in a non-model plant
The project would involve elucidating the genes involved in spot variation among many species of Clarkia, a genus of flowering plants mostly endemic to California.

Synthesis and Evaluation of Antibacterial Prodrugs
Testing for disease spillover among primates and humans
How do diseases spread among hosts? Some parasites are host-specialists, infecting only one or a few hosts, which decreases the chances of spreading among multiple hosts. Other parasites, however
