Genomics, adaptation and speciation in the Lepidoptera

We study adaption and speciation in the Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths).  In particular we are interested in studying how species converge due to mimicry, as a model for understanding the predictability of evolution, and the genetic and ecological causes of speciation.  We also study the genetic basis of insecticide resistance in the agricultural pest, diamondback moth.
