I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis

I'm organizing a conference next year and appreciate your tips for enhancing women's attendance (child care!) and leadership presence (plenary speakers!). Many of our society members are women.
