My research is focused on using genetic, genomic, bioinformatic, and statistical tools to address questions rooted in ecological and evolutionary biology. Over the past decade, my research has become increasingly applied and I frequently use population genetic approaches to address questions in animal conservation. Much of my work has been on salamanders, and I have used them as models for studying topics ranging from territoriality to molecular ecology to developmental genomics.
At present, I am interested in the following areas of inquiry:
