Science, n. from Latin scīre, to know

Our lab is interested in mechanisms and genomic patterns of speciation – the process that Charles Darwin called “the mystery of mysteries”. Under this inclusive umbrella, we look at a wide range of topics from hybridization to animal mate choice behavior, from natural to sexual selection, from macro- to micro-evolution and from purifying selection to positive selection.

Our favorite taxa are small fishes, but we love all kinds of living things (insects aside, which Ray is very afraid of).

Our lab will be hosted on the forth-coming Shenzhen campus of the School of Ecology of the Sun Yat-sen University. I am looking for motivated postdocs, graduate students and undergraduate interns. Please feel free to get in touch.
