Jeffrey Jensen





Jeff Jensen is a population geneticist and Professor in the ASU School of Life Sciences, the Center for Evolution and Medicine, and the Center for Mechanisms of Evolution. The Jensen Lab develops theory and statistical methodology for describing and quantifying evolutionary processes, and analyzes natural population data to describe the relative roles of these processes during the colonization of novel environments. The lab also analyzes experimental evolution data in order to gain insights into the underlying distribution of selective effects and fitness landscapes.
