Thomas J. DeWitt
I study ecological mechanisms generating evolutionary diversification. By combining theory and empirical studies, I aim to integrate disparate topics in ecology and evolutionary biology, including molecular and quantitative genetics, developmental biology, physiological ecology, multivariate natural selection, population genetics and dynamics, and community ecology.
Brian D. Shaw
My research program is in the area of fungal developmental biology. One major accomplishment is the establishment of the Apical Recycling Model, that has altered the discourse on the mechanism of cellular growth in fungi.
Heather H. Wilkinson
I apply evolutionary and ecological genetics approaches and questions to a variety of microbial systems. At the most basic level our overarching goal in my program is to elucidate the genetic basis for adaptation and/or how the patterns of associated phenotypes are distributed in nature or across environmental conditions.
