Assistant Professor, Ph.D. Yale University, 2000
Research Interests: Evolution and development of the digestive tract. I study patterning (how different organs are ordered) and morphogenesis (how organs take on their final shape and function) of the digestive tract in vertebrate embryos and how the digestive tract evolved in the vertebrate lineage over 450 million years.
