Postdoctoral Scholar - Evolutionary and Ecological Genetics - Department of Plant and Microbial Biology

Applying tools from evolutionary genomics, molecular genetics, and field ecology in sunflowers (Helianthus) and monkeyflowers (Mimulus), research in the Blackman Lab addresses the following questions: How do plants cope with daily and seasonal environmental fluctuations? How and why do these responses evolve along environmental gradients? How are multi-trait adaptations assembled over evolutionary time?
