Casey Dunn on Biology

Casey Dunn is an evolutionary biologist focusing on Cnidaria, the group of animals that include jellyfish, corals, and hydrozoans. He is the director of Dunn Lab at Brown.

Dunn Lab      

The Dunn Lab investigates how evolution has produced a diversity of life. They primarily focus on form (i.e. morphology), and are interested in learning about both the actual history of life on Earth and general properties of evolution that have contributed to these historical patterns. The type of questions the Dunn Lab asks require field (mostly marine), laboratory, and computational work.
