Justin is interested in how selfish DNA shapes the evolution of genetic systems. He is also working on method development in the lab, with a recent focus on getting CRISPR going in different species of Drosophila.
Alex is a Ph.D. student. Her research focuses on aging, germline stability and off-target effects of piRNA silencing.
Lucas is a Ph.D. student. His research focuses on the evolution of the synaptonemal complex and the landscape of meiotic recombination in Drosophila.
Fiona is an undergraduate seeking a degree in Biochemistry and Astrobiology. Her research focuses on chromosome stability and DNA damage in the germline.
Aquib is an undergraduate seeking a degree in Biology. His research focuses on DNA damage in the germline.
Jaimie is an undergraduate seeking a degree in Genetics. His research focuses on mechanisms of sterility mediated by transposable elements.
