Department of Biology & Earth Science
Dr. Sinn is a botanist whose research leverages molecular and morphological techniques to answer questions central to our understanding of the diversification of lineages and their evolutionary relationships, the transfer of genetic material between distantly related organisms, conservation, and organellar genome evolution. Dr. Sinn joined the department in 2019 after serving as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Barrett Lab at West Virginia University where his work focused on conservation genetics, comparative genomics, and ecological niche modeling. He also served as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Pfizer Plant Research Laboratory at the New York Botanical Garden as part of the international Planteome Project. Dr. Sinn teaches Principles of Biology, Introduction to Organisms and Ecology, and Molecular Evolution.
