We are a group of graduate students with interests in plant evolution and diversity, working under the direction of Dr. Barbara Schaal, Mary-Dell Chilton Distinguished Professor of Biology.
We work on diverse projects, including studies of biogeography, crop evolution, invasive species, phylogeography, speciation, and systematics. We study a wide variety of plants, including Amaranthus (Amaranthaceae), Anthurium(Araceae), the Arundinoideae (Poaceae), Pinus (Pinaceae), and Oryza (Poaceae). Many of us work in collaboration with the Missouri Botanical Garden.
