My lab and I are interested in the evolution of plant morphology. Lab projects include evolution of plant architecture in grasses (Poaceae), developmental genetics of domestication events in foxtail millet and other grasses, and evolution of fruit shape and of seed oils in Paysonia and related mustard species (Brassicaceae). We use phylogenetic, quantitative genetic, developmental genetic, developmental morphological, and, increasingly, phenomic and digital analysis techniques in these analyses.
