Faculty Mentors

Professor Christopher Ellison received his BA in Biology from Lewis & Clark College and his Ph.D. in Microbiology from UC Berkeley. The research in his lab combines functional and population genomic approaches in a variety of species of Drosophila to better understand how gene regulatory networks evolve at the molecular level. By using computational approaches to generate evolutionary hypotheses that can be tested via the genetic engineering of model species the work bridges the disciplines of evolutionary biology, molecular biology, and bioinformatics. He has a daughter and two cats, and when he is not hanging out with them he enjoys birding and cycling.
