My research objective is to explore and attempt to understand both natural and simulated evolution, a field I call “evolutionary studies.” I develop and analyze algorithms, such as multiple sequence alignment and phylogenetic inferencing algorithms. I also explore the practical and theoretical limits of algorithms modeling evolution, such as genetic programming and genetic algorithms.

Ann has been using microscopes in the research environment for 36 years. She began her career with electron microscopes and later focused on fluorescent and confocal microscopes, while working in the neuromuscular development laboratory of Dr. Michael Laskowski. She has been training other users in fluorescence and confocal microscopy since 1996.  She began flow cytometry and fluorescence activated cell sorting activities in 2008.
