I work in the Kreitman Lab at the University of Chicago. I learned about OpenWetWare from colleagues.

Research interests

  1. My research is focused on the trait of egg size and the developmental and evolutionary implications of shifts in per-offspring maternal investment. I am currently researching robustness of early segmentation gene expression patterns in Drosophila embryos after selection for divergent egg size.
  2. I also have an ongoing project to identify QTL influencing the trait of egg size in Drosophila melanogaster.
