JOAQUIN NUNEZ, Sc.M, Evolutionary Biologist
Welcome to my personal website. I am a Ph.D. candidate, NSF-GRFP fellow, and IGERT Research Fellow at Brown University’s department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB).
My research studies how evolution shapes functional genetic variation in natural populations living in highly variable environments. I seek to build an integrative view of the role of selection in nature from single mutations to complex phenotypes. My research is conducted in the laboratory of David M. Rand at Brown.
