Yoshinori Tomoyasu is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at Miami University. He received his B.Sc and MS from Hokkaido University and Ph.D. from the National Institute for Basic Science in Japan. After obtaining his Ph.D., he joined the lab of Rob Denell at Kansas State University, and started investigating the molecular mechanisms underlying the evolution of beetle wings. At Miami University (in Ohio), he continues to work on various aspects of insect wing evolution, from the evo-devo basis of wing diversification mechanisms to the origin of insect wings.
