I’m excited to announce that I will be joining the faculty of the Department of Biological Sciences at Idaho State University as an Assistant Professor of Ecological Genomics in October 2019! For the first few years, I’ll be part of the GEM3 research program, working to understand the evolutionary impact that invasive species and land use change has had on big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata), the iconic species of sagebrush steppe. I’ll also be continuing my work directly observing evolution using historical specimens of invasive species, and understanding rapid adaptation to novel environments in colonizing populations.
Y’all, there are going to be So. Many. Common. Gardens.
