Courses:  Biological Science I (BIOL 121), Fundamentals of Genetics (BIOL 350), Advanced Genetics (BIOL 442)

Research Interests: I am interested in the factors associated with maintaining diversity in plants that reproduce asexually. I also study the mating systems, gene flow, and diversity found in temperate and tropical epiphytic plants

  • Genetics of temperate and tropical plants
  • Mating and Breeding systems of tropical epiphytes
  • Clonal diversity
  • Genotoxicity
