I work in the lab of Dr. H.D. "Toby" Bradshaw, Jr. at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, studying the genetic basis of speciation in Mimulus (Lamiales), a developing model genus. I specifically work on speciation driven by pollinator-based prezygotic reproductive isolation; my pollinators of interest include hummingbirds, bumblebees, and hawkmoths (though I have a certain fondness for bats).
