I am generally interested in the processes that generate and maintain phenotypic diversity. Batesian mimics like Papilio polytes show remarkable within-species diversity in their wing patterns and I am investigating the genetic mechanisms that produce these disparate phenotypes. In addition to characterizing wing patterning mechanisms within P. polytes, I am also studying the evolution of mimicry in a larger, comparative context.
