We are developmental and evolutionary biologists investigating how adaptive variation has impacted  humans at a genetic and phenotypic level. To address this, we bridge evolutionary genomics with developmental discovery and functional testing in mice. Our mission is to not only gain a comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms and consequences by which evolution has shaped our species, but also to leverage these findings towards the betterment of human health.
