I am interested in the evolutionary genetics of speciation and in adaptation at the molecular level. In particular, I’d like to know: what types of molecular changes distinguish the genomes of closely related species? And what population genetic forces govern the evolution of these changes? To get at these questions, I focus on the genetics of speciation and species differences in Drosophila and, more recently, I have turned to genomic data to test population genetic theory concerning the evolutionary advantages of recombination.
