Hi there,

Thanks for stopping in. I’m an assistant prof in the biology dept at Western. My team and I study genome and molecular evolution, and are particularly interested in organelle genomes, genetic diversity, and microbial eukaryotes. We also do a lot of popular science writing and communication work. Check out the Research, Papers, Popular writing, and Blog for more details.shoe3
