Mapping the human genome has been compared with putting a man on the moon, but I believe it is more than that.

Current Research


I am studying reproductively isolating barriers responsible for asymmetric hybridization between sibling species of Rhagoletis fruit flies (R. pomonella and R. zephyria). These barriers include prezygotic host acceptance and mate acceptance which may not be equally expressed in male and females of both species.
