Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
I have been a member of the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology since 1986. My research focuses on the evolution and genetics of plants. I’ve studied the evolution of plant mating systems; explored how basic principles of ecology, evolutionary biology, and systematics should influence conservation decisiions; and developed statistical methods for analyzing genetic diversity in spatially structured populations.
Since January, 2012 I have been serving as Vice Provost for Graduate Education and Dean of The Graduate School.
