My interests are focused in several areas that include plant speciation and evolution, the application of DNA technology to solving problems ranging from the preservation/degradation of DNA, geographic differentiation at the sub-specific level, variation due to relictual Ice Age conditions, to the use of DNA sequencing for phylogenetic studies and identfication of terpenoids by mass spectroscopy and analysis of terpene synthase genes.
