Research Scientist / Center for Conservation and Evolutionary Genetics
My broad interests lie in the evolutionary biology and population genetics of mammals; specifically using genetic techniques in conservation biology. I am interested in learning about the genetic basis of adaptation, and the importance of these adaptations to the process of speciation in mammals.
