Introducing Dr. Matt Jones!

Congratulations to Matt Jones for successfully defending his PhD!

His PhD was truly inspiring research — combining extensive genome sequencing and analysis, functional characterization, detailed population genetic modeling, and simulations to understand the evolution of coat color change in snowshoe hares. His first author Science paper this summer was one of the most exciting and thorough single studies I have had the pleasure to work on, and that was just Chapter 2 of 4…

Matt is off to ASU in the spring to work with Jeff Jensen on population genomic inference from temporal samples.
