Andrew Wheeler

Originally from the East Coast, I came to RSABG to work with Carol Wilson on questions within the Iris Family. I worked with Dr. Wilson at Portland State University for a short time, prior to that I was a research assistant to Dr. Kathleen Donohue in the department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University. In Dr. Donohue’s lab I worked on various projects involving seed dispersal and fruit morphology. My interests include investigating variation within and among populations of several North American native Iris species and I am currently working with Dr. Wilson to see how pollen morphology data informs her phylogenetic work in the Iris family.
