Welcome to the Denver Lab!
We investigate the basic processes of life from diverse perspectives. Research interests range from genome evolution to symbiosis dynamics to the intersections of scientific and Buddhist thinking. Current projects focus on nematodes, their symbionts, and Bodhi trees.
Are you interested in joining us for graduate studies?
