My research aims to explore how genetic diversity is distributed across space and time, identify the ecological and landscape factors shaping this distribution, and determine what these relationships mean for population and species persistence. I use genomic, bioinformatic, and geospatial methods, and primarily study freshwater and marine fishes. A major goal of my research is to inform conservation and management actions. I completed my PhD at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science in 2018, and am currently a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Mariah Meek's lab at Michigan State University.
I love discussing new ideas and collaborations! Feel free to reach out at mamooz (at) msu (dot) edu.
