Balakrishnan, Christopher N. Assistant Professor


Work in the Balakrishnan Lab is aimed at understanding how genes and the environment interact to generate biodiversity. By combining a historical perspective with functional and comparative genomics, we seek to uncover both the genomic basis of evolutionary adaptation and the ecological and demographic processes responsible for population divergence. Our work revolves around four central research themes: Speciation Biology; Behavioral Genomics; Comparative Genomics; and Phylogeography.
