The focus of my lab is functional evolution in the plant family Brassicaceae. Currently my group uses protein diversity from across land plants to decode the evolutionary history of plant signaling systems. We collaborate in these efforts with members of the Center for Research on Programmable Plant Systems (CROPPS), a Science and Technology Center funded by the National Science Foundation.
