Hi there,

Thanks for stopping in. I’m an assistant prof in the biology department at Western University. 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 science communication work. Check out the RESEARCH, PAPERS, POPULAR WRITING and BLOG links for more details. If you’re a prospective student or volunteer, hit the CONNECT link to see what we’re looking for, you might just fit the bill. I love TEACHING and am currently instructing in various genetics, genomics, and writing courses on campus. For my CONTACT info click here. And for all you academic metrics geeks, here are my Google Scholar and ImpactStory profiles.

Take it easy,
