Research Interests:
My research interests are fairly diverse. In the past, I have worked in the areas of embryonic patterning and cell signaling, specifically the regulation of cell adhesion during early embryo pattern formation using the frog Xenopus laevis as a developmental system to study the interaction of Eph receptor tyrosine kinases with cadherin adhesion complexes.

More recently, I have sequenced the mtDNAs of two subspecies of Peromyscus leucopus. These two subspecies are differentiated based only on their karyotype.
