The advent of high-throughput sequencing has brought genetic studies of non-model systems into the genomics era, enabling robust assessments of questions typical of ecological and evolutionary biology, and the assessment of new questions altogether. I am interested in using these genomic methods to study relationships among populations and species in marine and freshwater systems. The primary goal of this work is to improve our understanding of ecological and evolutionary processes in aquatic environments, and to provide practical information for management and conservation. I completed my PhD in 2018 at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William & Mary. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the laboratory of Dr. Mariah Meek at Michigan State University.
