Research Interests

I am a molecular evolutionary biologist with a diverse set of interests in ecology and evolution including: [1] the genetics of adaptation, [2] the genetics of reproductive isolation and speciation, [3] the molecular ecology of invasive species, and [4] conservation genetics of fishes.
