I am currently a post doctoral scholar in the BEACON Center for the Study of Evolution in Action at Michigan State University.  Broadly speaking, my research focuses on the evolutionary process.  How repeatable is evolution?  How predictable are the outcomes?  How does exposure to authenticate inquiry alter student learning about evolution?  I address these questions with a combination of wet-lab biology (predominantly using Escherichia coli, from the Long-Term Evolution Experiment), digital evolutionary systems (predominantly Avida, a digital evolution software platform), and an ongoing national study in the use of Avida-ED, a web-based educational version of the Avida software platform.
