Associate Dean: Integration of Teaching and Scholarship

Professor of Biology

LEADERSHIP: As Associate Dean, I support CSM faculty as they advance initiatives to engage students in research practice and as they pursue interdisciplinary scholarship. Together, we seek to build a diverse, mindful, and inclusive community of scholars, where all participants are stakeholders in the process of discovery.

RESEARCH: The Davis Lab studies the gene regulatory networks that drive vertebrate morphogenesis, focusing on the development of fins & limbs.  We take a comparative approach, studying vertebrates such as the American paddlefish, zebrafish, sharks, and amphibians to test hypotheses about gene function and evolution.
