David Hillis, Professor and PI (
Research Interests: Life, the Universe, and Everything, but especially things related to biodiversity, evolution, and phylogenetic methods and their applications.
Interested in graduate work in my lab? Here are my perspectives on who should go to graduate school in evolutionary biology, and what you can do with a graduate degree:

Research Associates

Tom Devitt, Research Fellow
Ph.D., Integrative Biology from University of California, Berkeley.

Graduate Students

E. Anne Chambers, Ph.D. Candidate
B.Sc. University of Guelph
M.Sc. University of Guelph
Research Interest: I am broadly interested in species delimitation and integrative taxonomy in reptiles and amphibians. Currently, I am involved in research exploring the limitations associated with use of multispecies coalescent-based methods for species delimitation. 

Thomas Marshall, Ph.D. Student 
B.A. Psychology, Vanderbilt University 
M.S. Population and Conservation Biology, Texas State University
Research Interest: I'm interested in using molecular systematics and population genomics to address evolutionary questions in reptiles and amphibians. 
Ruben Tovar
Ruben Tovar, Ph.D. Candidate
B.S. Interdisciplinary Studies, University of Texas at Arlington
M.S. Biology, Texas State University
Research Interest: I am broadly interested in the molecular and developmental underpinnings responsible for the evolution of subterranean phenotypes, and repeated eye loss in the central Texas Eurycea clade. 
Brittney White, Ph.D. Student 
A.Sc. Biology, Central New Mexico Community College
B.Sc. Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology, University of New Mexico
Research Interest: I study mechanisms of phenotypic evolution and morphological diversification using Anolis and Urosaurus ornatus lizards.
