Waldo S. Walker Chair in Biology
My students and I try to determine: (1) how natural selection shapes plant reproduction, life history, and physiology; and (2) why plant species occur where they do, rather than somewhere else. A westerner transplanted to Iowa, I seem to be reasonably well adapted to this novel habitat. I attended Pomona College (BA) and the University of Utah (PhD), and I did postdoctoral work at UC Berkeley and Cornell University.
