Dr. Runcie joined the Department of Plant Sciences in July 2015.

He was a postdoctoral scholar with Johanna Schmitt just next door in the Department of Evolution and Ecology at UC Davis and with Stephen Welch at KSU, studying how gene networks and whole-plant physiology together regulate flowering phenology in Arabidopsis thaliana. He earned is Ph.D. from Duke University with Gregory Wray, using quantitative genetics to study genetic variation and plasticity in gene regulatory networks of sea urchin embryos. He also earned a MS in Statistics from Duke with Scott Schmidler, where he developed methods to identify correlations between gene expression traits and 3D morphology.

I joined Runcie Lab in April, 2016. I have been working on software programming on BSFG model in R. My project involves applying BSFG to a dataset of experimental evolution in floral traits.
