Ph.D. North Carolina State University, 1998

Conservation genetics, fisheries science, stock identification, marine ecology, ecology of tidal marsh birds

Research Emphasis

My research is focused on the application of genetic approaches to the conservation, ecology and management of fish and wildlife populations.  My students and I address questions about population genetic structure and diversity, dispersal, landscape and seascape genetics, and inter-specific hybridization in a variety of terrestrial, marine and aquatic systems, with a focus on species of conservation concern.  Some of our recent projects of relevance to the Marine Program include genetic stock identification in Atlantic cod, rainbow smelt and redfish, and the ecology, population genetics, and conservation of tidal marsh sparrows. For more information about my research, please see my departmental and laboratory web pages.
