Dr. Browne's research focuses on investigating patterns of change underlying organismal diversity. Using a multidisciplinary experimental approach, Browne and his graduate researchers explore the relationships between genotype and phenotype from both developmental and evolutionary perspectives. Developmental studies in the lab use three species as models; the amphipod crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis, the anthozoan cnidarian Nematostella vectensis, and the lobate ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi. Evolutionary investigations include work on a range of species affiliated with these three taxa.
