Alison F. Feder
I am an evolutionary biologist studying how adaptation proceeds in space and time. I'm currently a Miller Fellow with Oskar Hallatschek and Monty Slatkin in the Department of Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley. I received my PhD in biology at Stanford University advised by Dmitri Petrov.
