Research InterestsI am interested in conservation genetics and evolution. Of particular interest are the relationships between life history variation, population history, dispersal and genetic variation. Although I work primarily on freshwater invertebrates, some of my students have worked on other marine and terrestrial animals. Many of the species we work on are endangered or of concern.
