Liz is completing her thesis studying Population Genomics of the arctic plants Eriophorum vaginatum and Betula nana at a landscape scale. She is also exploring demographic analyses and comparative genomics.
Chris is focusing his research interests in population genomics, phylogenomics, and demographic analyses of Chihuahuan Desert plants within the family Polygalaceae.
Luis is using transcriptomics to understand ecotypic adaptations of the arctic plant Eriophorum vaginatum in relation to climate change scenarios. He is also interest in the landscape genomics of Arctic shrub species.
