General Interests

The main emphasis of my research is in population and evolutionary genetics. The major long-term goal of my research is to contribute to the understanding of the evolutionary, ecological, and historical processes responsible for the patterns of diversity observed in nature, a central concern to evolutionary biology.

Current Research Projects

Current areas of research include: population and evolutionary genetics of introduced and native fire ants; molecular systematics of fire ants; and the evolutionary interactions of Wolbachia microbes and their insect hosts, using several insect groups as model systems.
