Dr. Weber works on the genetic basis of complex, ecologically relevant traits. His areas of expertise are molecular genetics, quantitative and populations genetics, ecoimmunology, and behavioral ecology. While the Weber Lab predominantly works on stickleback fishes and deer mice (Genus Peromyscus), we are excited to tackle questions about adaptation genetics using whichever organism is best suited to the experiments.
Outside of professional science, Jesse’s hobbies are:
-Hiking and backpacking, especially in mountains and canyons
-Following Colorado sports teams and playing basketball and softball
-BBQing all sorts of things (low, slow, and smoked!)
