For my physics Ph.D. work on condensed matter theory, I used computer simulations and mathematics. I transferred those skills to theoretical evolutionary ecology, and earned tenure in the Duke Zoology department. The lack of funding for that research precluded promotion at Duke, and I directed my... Full Profile »

Gregory Allan Wray

Professor of Biology

Office: 125 Science Drive, 4104 French Family Science Center, Durham, NC 27708

Phone: (919) 684-6696

I study the evolution of genes and genomes with the broad aim of understanding the origins of biological diversity. My approach focuses on changes in the expression of genes using both empirical and computational approaches and spans scales of biological organization from single nucleotides... Full Profile »

Justin Prouty Wright

Associate Professor in the Department of Biology

Office: 258 Biological Sciences, Durham, NC 27708

Phone: (919) 613-8096

My research focuses on understanding the causes and consequences of patterns of biological diversity across the planet. I am particularly interested in two broad questions: 1)How does the modification of the environment by organisms affect community structure and ecosystem function? and 2) what... Full Profile »
