Evolutionary Genomics Lab

@ George Mason University

Welcome to the Evolutionary Genomics Lab at the Department of Biology, George Mason University. Our lab uses evolutionary genomics methods to study how geography, ecology and history interact to create, maintain, and distribute biological diversity. We aim to use integrative approaches that transcends disciplinary boundaries because biological processes themselves are not compartmentalized. Thus, I actively seek out collaborative ventures that expand the sphere of our research, while focusing on our core strengths of evolutionary biology, phylogenetics, population genetics and bioinformatic analysis.

While the study system that has been my primary focus are birds of southeastern Asia, the lab is also working on other systems such as mammals, bees (and their pathogens) in northern Virginia, and bird microbiome.
