Athrey, Giri Associate Professor


The main focus of our lab is to address fundamental questions relevant to evolution, genetics, and conservation of both domesticated and wild bird species. Research projects in our lab utilize field and experimental studies coupled with genomic and computational tools to illuminate the genetic basis of quantitative traits, functional aspects of communicable and vector-borne diseases, innate immunity and population genetics of avian and non-avian taxa. The broader implications of our research include the generation of knowledge and innovative tools for improving animal, human and environmental health.
