Tia-Lynn Ashman

Distinguished Professor
Department of Biological Sciences
(Work) (412) 624-0984

Dr. Ashman's current work in the lab revolves around three major foci: 1) The contribution of polyploidy to functional and genomic biodiversity; 2) Ecological and evolutionary studies of separate sexes and sex chromosomes; and 3) The factors that shape plant-pollinator interactions, and the consequences for phenotypic evolution, microbial-plant interactions and community structure of flowering plants.

Dr. Ashman received her Ph.D. in 1991 with M.L. Stanton at the University of California at Davis, performed her postdoctoral studies with DJ Schoen at McGill University, and joined the Department of Biological Sciences in 1994.
