Current lab members

Schumer, M. Headshot


Molly Schumer is an assistant professor in Biology (starting fall 2019). She is interested in understanding the ways in which hybridization impacts genetic and evolutionary processes.






Dan Powell is a postdoc in the lab starting in 2019.





Ben Moran is a graduate student in the lab who is  interested in how patterns of gene flow change across the spectrum from homogeneous populations to well-diverged species. He plans to connect the evolution of genomes under gene flow to mechanisms of reproductive isolation, and apply this knowledge to the conservation of genetic diversity in threatened populations.




Cheyenne Payne is a graduate student using genomic and proteomic tools to explore whether hybridization facilitates adaptation to environmental stress in parental species and hybrid populations.








Dani Blakkan is our lab and fish room manager.
