Tom E.X. Miller, Ph.D.
Godwin Assistant Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Andrew’s research uses experiments and models to examine the mechanisms underlying variability in the infection frequencies of fungal endophytes in native grass populations.
Michelle is interested in how gene flow (both intra- and inter-specific) might alter evolutionary trajectories of lineages via possible changes in genetic correlations among traits. She is examining this in the context of host-parasite interactions, where hybridization among parasites might change host specificity or contribute to adaptation to new hosts. She is currently using Bruchid beetles in the laboratory as a model system, but also plans to study natural populations.
Brad studies the interplay of ecological and evolutionary mechanisms during range expansion, including the evolution of dispersal ability due to spatial sorting.
Emily is interested in plant demography and population dynamics.
Michelle has broad interests in evolutionary ecology, including the evolution of plant mating systems, the impact of gene flow upon plant/mutualist interactions and long-term population dynamics, the role of mutualists at range boundaries, hybridization, biogeography, and conservation genetics.
