Lab philosophy

Our goal as a lab is to understand the interaction between germ cell biology and genome evolution.  We prioritize rigorous, creative experimental or computational approaches that contribute new information and ideas to the field, and we maintain a high standard of scientific integrity.  We aim to provide a supportive training environment for students and postdocs to define their interests and career goals; in this context, we expect lab members to push themselves to grow as scholars during their time in the lab.  Finally, we believe that the pursuit of exciting science should preserve the joy of discovery and our wonder at the natural world: scientific careers are often stressful, but the practice of science should be fun and fulfilling.
