|John started the lab in 2011. Prior to that, he did postdocs with Chuck Langley (UC Davis) and Rasmus Nielsen (UC Berkeley & Copenhagen), and a PhD with Chip Aquadro (Cornell). At UW-Madison, he is affiliated with the Laboratory of Genetics and the Genetics PhD program, the Zoology grad program, the J. F. Crow Institute for the Study of Evolution, and the Genome Sciences Training Program.|
|Dr. Duranton studies the population genomics of admixture and
the evolutionary models underlying early stage reproductive isolation.
Her PhD work linked genomic variation and speciation in European sea bass, in the research group of Pierre-Alexandre Gagnaire at the University of Montpellier.
|Chris is a Genetics PhD
interested in using theory and computation to answer evolutionary
questions. He is currently investigating a new model for
inversion maintenance. As an undergraduate at Cornell, he did
computational research on transcription factor binding sites with Robert Reed.
|Tiago is a Zoology PhDstudent.
He is researching the genetic architecture of adaptive trait evolution
and the utility of SNP-level differentiation for detecting local
adaptation. He received a masters
degree from the
University of São Paulo working with Christina Miyaki.
|Matt is a Genetics PhD
student interested in behavioral evolution and reproductive
isolation. He is investigating the genetic and biological basis
of hybrid breakdown in male mating success within D. melanogaster. He did masters research on fly behavior with Janis O'Donnell at the University of Alabama.
|Siyuan is a Genetics PhD
interested in altitude adaptation and the integration of population and
functional genomics. He is currently analyzing population genomic
data from the agricultural pest Drosophila suzukii. His masters research was advised by Mingzhou Li at Sichuan Agricultural University.
