Associate Professor of Biology
Research in Kevin J. Emerson's lab focuses on two separate, though related questions:
- How does the environment interact with the genome to control developmental and physiological processes?
- How does the evolution of these interactions allow for the proliferation of organisms across diverse environments throughout the temperate zone?
A combination of modern molecular approaches and the interpretation of physiological, evolutionary, and ecological contexts drive our research.
