I'm primarily a field botanist, will that do?  ;-)  I do use isozymes to
work on problems in population genetics... my training is in "classical"
plant taxonomy, but I've been picking up some molecular techniques on 
the side.  My primary interests are in the influences interspecific 
gene flow has on speciation.

I'm an assistant prof at a school that is primarily a teaching university,
but also values research.  Time management is one of the critical 
survival issues for me... do I get ready for tomorrow's courses, curate
the herbarium, counsel students, catch up on some reading, shovel
some paper off the desk...?  I've a bit taken aback at the number
of female students who tell me they consider me a role model... 

Uh, oh.. faculty meeting time.  Gotta go.
