My research is in population and evolutionary genetics, with an emphasis on the application of basic theory to practical problems.   Projects include:

I participate in three graduate programs:   Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology (EEOB); Genetics, Genomics, and Bioinformatics (GGB); and Microbiology.   In addition, I participate in the Evolutionary Biology Joint-Doctoral Program with San Diego State University.  I am a member of UCR's Center for Conservation Biology, which promotes conservation research and participate in the UC Intercampus Research Program on Experimental Evolution (UCIRPEE)

I am the current Treasurer of the International Society for Evolution, Ecology, and Cancer (ISEEC), and an external faculty member of the Center for Evolution and Cancer at UCSF.
