I am interested in the evolution of plant diversity, particularly at the lowest taxonomic levels. In my lab we use multidisciplinary approaches to address a variety of questions in plant evolutionary biology from traditional taxonomy to phylogeography and population genetics.

Current projects include:
1. Phylogeography of California Channel Islands flora
2. Systematics of
Platanthera section Limnorchis
3. Biogeography of rhizobia-legume symbioses
4. Digitization of the MSU herbarium

We welcome Eranga Wettewa and Mabi Hosseinalizadehnobarinezhad to the lab to begin work on Ph.D. degrees.

A review of chloroplast microsatellites conducted by the lab will be published soon in Applications in Plant Sciences.

Digitization of the MSU Herbarium is complete.  Images are available at
