Because our research goals are inherently interdisciplinary, our team includes individuals trained in several different fields. In order to achieve our research objectives, however, many of these individuals must work closely with lab members whose background lies within other disciplines.
For these reasons, although some of the work conducted within our research group tends to break down naturally into efforts conducted within distinct disciplinary subgroups, a number of individuals divide their time among several of these subgroups. In practice, this makes it more difficult to categorize the members of our research team according to their actual interests and activities within the group. In order to conveniently introduce the members of our lab, however, we've listed each lab member under just one of the following categories:
