4510 Miller Plant Sciences, University of Georgia
I currently have room in my lab for graduate students and undergraduate students interested in molecular phylogenetics, evolutionary trait analysis, and communication system evolution (signals, senders, receivers and impact of signaling environment).
Prospective students/postdocs. I welcome all inquiries concerning the possibility of working in my lab as an undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral researcher. Please feel free to contact me, preferably by email, to discuss possibilities. If you are considering graduate school, you should also visit the UGA graduate school website, the Integrated Life Sciences program website, and the other evolution & ecology or insect biology labs on campus, and/or the biology education research group. You will need to decide which program on campus to apply through -- please email me for advice. You should also check out Athens, which is a great place to live while in graduate school.
K-12 School teachers. If you are interested in scheduling a classroom visit for a firefly presentation, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can also help you find other faculty who can talk about other research areas. If you are interested in classroom activities that involve fireflies (in the field or using data), please contact me so we can discuss possibilities.
High School students. If you are interested in a summer experience in our research lab, please inquire how to apply to the Young Dawgs program at UGA.
